Equality, Diversity and Inclusion by Brook Graham

We help you improve your organisation’s culture, using our building blocks of audit, training, consultancy, coaching and accountability to get you to where you need to be.


You might want to deal with a particular challenge, or have a regulatory requirement, or you might have spotted issues or opportunities in your workplace culture to do with gender, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQ+, mental health or neurodiversity. We can help you understand what that culture is and support you in making it what you want it to be. 

We do this with the insight and support of an international law firm, giving you peace of mind that our solutions comply with the law where you are.

We can help you review your talent process, develop inclusive leadership and create a culture of everyday conscious inclusion. Our experience as part of a large international business means we understand how hard change can be, and what is needed to make it happen.

We go further to make sure that what we offer you is tailored to your organisation and your culture. D&I can be a sensitive area where generic or off-the-shelf training may not be appropriate.

Our international consultants deliver insight into workplace cultures all around the world, as well as offering services in many languages and time zones.
