MEET THE FOUNDER…
As a entrepreneur, Cleo noticed there wasn’t many people that looked like her in the business world or workplace. Even though she’d spent years speaking and meeting with many highly qualified, capable and driven men and women from disadvantaged and BAME backgrounds.
She noticed they were not provided with the same level support, opportunity and access. But seen as a “check box quota” for diversity.
As a result, Cleo launched Mission Diverse CIC, a not-for-profit organisation focused on providing free community business support aimed to create the next generation of successful BAME business owners and employees.
As well as this Mission Diverse also helps educate corporate companies on diversity and unconscious bias.
