Foundation Race Awareness Training
Client Testimonials

Cleo and the team at Mission Diverse delivered a brilliant session for their Race Awareness Training day for our team. The session was informative, fun and allowed us to have challenging yet useful conversations in a safe space. The considered structure of the day meant a significant volume of information was communicated to us, without it feeling overwhelming or draining. Considering the amount of information there was to take in, it didn’t feel draining. This training has given our organisation us a lot of food for thought and made us feel more confident in bringing positive action into our organisation.
Following the Bar Council’s recommendation that chambers engage in race awareness training, we researched providers and found Mission Diverse. Their website seemed to tick all the boxes we were looking to cover and having spoken to Cleo Morris on the telephone, I felt confident that Mission Diverse would be able to offer a course that covered our needs. It didn’t disappoint. Both members and staff attended the session which was engaging and inclusive and Cleo herself was first class in the way she presented. We will definitely use Mission Diverse again where appropriate and I’m delighted to recommend them to any other organisation looking for race awareness training.

You may be unaware of the existence or impact of LGBTQ issues and understanding in your organisation. Not only is discrimination in the workplace unacceptable, it can also have negative impacts on your employees and your bottom line. Employees who face race-based discrimination are more likely to report having experienced:

  • A negative impact on both physical and mental health.
  • Decreased motivation.
  • Decrease in productivity.

Employers who do not take an active approach to combating LGBTQ issues within their organisation may experience:

  • Diminished mental health of diverse staff.
  • Loss of sales revenue and customers due to LGBTQ coverage and bad PR.
  • Toxic work culture.
  • High turnover in staff due to a toxic insensitive work culture.
  • Negative impact on recruitment efforts.

Our other Training Services

At Mission Diverse we believe in connecting companies with communities. Unlike some organisations, we are a non-profit company, who use the money you pay us for our training programmes, to reinvest in our Local Community Employability and Enterprise programmes.

Our employability and enterprise programmes provide education, mentoring and personal development training to people from underrepresented and disadvantaged communities. By doing this we hope to provide those from underrepresented communities with the necessary skills and knowledge to enter entrepreneurship and the workplace (…or maybe come and work in your company!).
