Creating Real Change
Mission Diverse is an organisation working towards greater workplace and entrepreneurial diversity amongst people from underrepresented communities. We do this by reinvesting the profits we make from our Diversity & Inclusion training and consulting delivered to corporations, small businesses and institutes across the UK. We connect communities with companies by offering our 4-phase approach to training, courses and workshops aimed at developing diversity, proactiveness, enterprise and employability.
What Makes Us Different?
We level the playing field so people from under-represented community get access to education, training, support and mentoring. We also work with employers to proactively support opportunity development, recruitment & engagement with people who are the best candidate for the job, as opposed a “preferred” company option.
What's The Mission?
“To make diversity the norm, not a trend in the workplace and in entrepreneurship across the globe, through effective education, training and development.”
- Providing educational and enterprise support and training to individuals from black and minority ethnic backgrounds and underrepresented communities.
- To actively train, educate and develop diversity and inclusion in the workplace, institutes and corporations.
“To ensure nobody faces adversity due to a lack of diversity.”
Our vision is to ensure people from all walks of life have the same, fair and equal opportunity to excel in the world of business through education, development and training.
To ensure every person’s differences are viewed as diverse. Not as a check-box quota.
- Teach and educate young people about business and enterprise.
Whilst encouraging diversity in the community through our enterprise workshops and programmes. We also work with corporates and organisations by providing race awareness, diversity and unconscious bias training, consultancy, research, and reporting services. With the revenues generated from these services, reinvested directly back into our diverse and inclusive community programmes and youth projects to help support, educate and mentor the next generation.
Meet The Founder
“You gotta be twice as good…”
Mission Diverse Founder & Director,
Mission Diverse founder and entrepreneur, Cleo noticed there weren’t many people that looked like her in the business world or workplace. Even though she’d spent years speaking to, and meeting with many highly qualified, capable, and driven men and women from disadvantaged and Black and minority ethnic backgrounds. Cleo also saw that those from Black and minority backgrounds were not provided with the same level of support, opportunity and access, but instead seen as a “company check box quota” for diversity.
As a result, Cleo launched Mission Diverse, a organisation aimed to create the next generation of successful Black & Minority ethnic business owners and workplace employees. We provide corporate training on diversity, inclusion, race, gender micro-aggressions, unconscious bias and intersectionality in the workplace for employers to ensure it no longer is seen as a “tick box exercise”.
Investing In The Future...
We reinvest the profits we make from our training and consultancy services back into our community, schools and start-up education programmes. So you can be assured you’re not only supporting in the people of today with Mission Diverse, but investing in generations to come.
Our community youth engagement and Black and minority ethnic start-up business programmes, combined with our workplace Diversity and Inclusion Training provides a holistic approach to educating, training and developing those from all walks of life.
