EW Group and Challenge Consultancy are the UK’s leading diversity consultancy

We help organizations from the public, private and non-profit sectors to embrace diversity in all its forms and to create cultures of inclusion, equity and belonging. We do this at two levels: systemic (through strategy, audit and analysis) and behavioral (through learning and development).

We’re incredibly passionate about the work we do. We believe every employee has the right to a workplace that values and celebrates the multi-layered, interconnected facets that make up our identities as individuals. And we know that this approach brings tangible business benefits to all our clients.

I've been part of this awesome consultant team here for over 6 years and it's been wonderful seeing EW grow and extend its influence for good into new regions and sectors.

Our highly tailored approach to diversity development

We steer clear of off-the-shelf solutions. Instead, we develop high-quality content which reflects the client’s identity and training priorities. This approach considers key messages and challenges that are unique to the client: by tapping into an organization’s own culture, we’re able to gain significant traction when it comes to engagement and measurable shifts in perceptions.
