Diversity and inclusion

Diversity is about behaviour and outcomes. It’s about how relationships are enacted. It’s about how we perform in everyday situations, based on how we think — and how we think about how we think. In other words, diversity is a process, not a structure.

Binna Kandola, The Value of Difference (2009), p. 3.

We are diversity and inclusion specialists and actively research diversity and inclusion in the arts, curatorial and cultural sectors.

We understand the complex situations and institutional legacies that can make it hard to understand how to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion in your organisation or work.

When you embrace diversity as an attitude it will result in a stronger network, a more responsive workforce and better business.

Diversity and inclusion monitoring

One way to understand where your gaps are is to undertake sensitive and meaningful diversity and inclusion monitoring, whether of your workforce, governance board or audiences. We can help you develop methods to evaluate the measures you already have in place so they better meet your commitment and aims as a diverse-led organisation.

If you are an Arts Council England supported organisation we can also help you understand and embed the Creative Case for Diversity.
