Diversity for Good

Diversity for Good

In Diverse Company believes in making a difference, and not just to companies’ commercial performance.

We don’t just find it sad that by the age of 6, girls feel that they are inferior to boys, we are doing something about it by working with primary and secondary schools across the UK to support teachers, parents and students. We have designed a facilitated session that helps groups of children identify the issue in a collaborative and fun way and think about ways in which they can work, play and socialise with each other to try and mitigate the perception girls have of themselves. Sessions have been designed for teachers and parents to think about language used, stereotypes drawn and other ways in which we can counteract this issue. We are developing a piece of research in this area as part of the voluntary work we are doing.

We don’t just pay a professional interest in cultural diversity, we are actively working with leadership teams in India, China and Nairobi to provide coaching and D&I executive support. Through these relationships we have been working to develop local coaches and have gained a broader understanding of cross-cultural working practices.

We don’t just care about developing educational leaders with a greater understanding of how to foster and create an inclusive culture, our team regularly provides voluntary coaching to people we meet either through work or personal interests. Our team has provided pro-bono coaching to an Assistant Principle across multi-academy trust. Together they have been exploring how to maintain authenticity as a leader whilst adapting style, language and approach to gain credibility with her Leadership Team and a culture where teachers are able to speak-up and out.

What we’re talking about

Johanna launched In Diverse Company in 2019 out of a strong belief that there was a better way to create and measure inclusive cultures.

We set up our events programme to share some truly inspirational stories and provide evidence of the power of inclusion within the workplace, as well as an opportunity for networking, talking through issues and challenges and creating a community for those working along a D&I journey.

We live by our values, and our approach to our own recruitment policy, team and purpose reflects this. We are a tech company driven by a senior team that are experts in people, with one of the only female CEOs of a HR tech platform across the world.

Our Learning Platform, Include™ is the only LXP that combines Learning and Engagement. Include aims to create more inclusive working cultures and is underpinned by social and behavioural psychology principles.
