Audit or Diagnostic?

Understanding your organization’s diversity profile is the foundation of an inclusive and effective business. To ensure this, our experts work with you to perform equality, diversity and inclusion audits and analysis, identifying your challenges and strengths.

This allows us to propose powerful actions that will provide immediate changes, and then develop an ambitious, long-term culture transformation plan based on your available resources. Utilizing diagnostic reports and staff consultation, you gain new insights into the systemic or cultural barriers that hinder diversity.

We also offer in-house data training courses that will help you measure this data, creating lasting change which can later be validated with our externally assessed accreditation, the Diversity Development Standard.
