This course is for you if...

  • you're interested in diversity and inclusion and you want to turn that interest into impact

  • you have unlimited ambition for your diversity and inclusion initiative but limited time and resources

  • you're looking to get more buy-in from senior management

  • your company hasn't started any diversity and inclusion initiative yet but you'd like to change that

  • you feel like you have 101 initiatives on the go but you're not seeing the change you hoped for

More than a drop in the ocean

I know you're here because you're interested in diversity and inclusion. I also know that this space can feel vast and overwhelming. But please trust me when I say every act of intentional inclusion makes a difference. In fact the simplest initiative can have the biggest impact. It can cause ripples of effect that we can see and feel. Over the years as a consultant and researcher, I've seen so many individuals and organisations spend so much time and energy trying to do so many different things without seeing a return on that investment. And that my friends is why I created this course. In short I want you and your company to get the most out of your D&I initiative. I want to help you leverage the most impact from your efforts. I want you to take a step further towards creating a Diverse, Inclusive, Value packed and Equity driven (DIVE) culture.

Frequently asked questions

  • Do I need to be in an official diversity and inclusion role within my organisation?

    No! You could be the CEO of the stationary cupboard or the CEO of a multi-national. This course is all about leveraging who you are, where you are and what you do, so you can have impact regardless of your role.

  • Do I need to have experience in developing diversity and inclusion initiatives before I start the course?

    No! You will get as much out of this course if it's you have 101 initiatives on the go or you're looking to develop your first one.

  • What do you mean by a D&I initiative

    There's lots of ways individuals and organisations try to influence diversity and inclusion. Common initiatives are the development of employee groups, training (like unconscious bias training), the creation of a D&I calendar of events and talks, creating targets for recruitment or promotion of minority groups...In this course we don't cover strategies or the creation of a roadmap (we cover that in other courses, for example our 'DIVE IN' or 'Making Waves' course), in this introductory course we focus on the impact an individual initiative can have.

  • Will this course help me create initiatives

    No, at least not directly. We use lots of different examples of different initiatives throughout the course but if you're looking for support creating initiatives specifically you should try our 'DIVE IN' course which includes one to one coaching support with me.

  • I'm just starting out in diversity and inclusion work and I find the terminology sometimes confusing. What level of general D&I knowledge do I need before I start this course.

    I've been working in this space for decades and I still find the terminology confusing! The language we use in this space is continuously evolving and as I always say, every day is a school day! So fear not you don't need any level of prior knowledge we include lots of free resources within the course such as guides to terminology.
