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.
Simply put, Cleo is amazing at what she does. Her delivery is engaging and thorough. The sessions are well paced and well planned. I would be delighted to join further training. The session I attended was unfortunately cut short due to a fire alarm, however I am confident that the second half would have been brilliant. Cleo kindly sent me the Mission Diverse handbook. The mass of terminology included has educated me well. This is a valuable resource. Props to Cleo for being so personable too!
We were introduced to Mission Diverse by a recommendation from a trusted colleague and business owner. We were impressed by the Founder's story and credentials, and how they took time to invest in fully understanding the journey we have been on as a business, our industry, our culture and how we effectively communicate as a team. Mission Diverse's approach is a great blend of empathy, professionalism and pragmatism. We aligned on our company values of generosity, in particular, and a desire to work with partners who give back to their community.

Race awareness training is designed to provide you with the knowledge on the various forms of racism that exist within our society and may exist within your organisation and teach you the skills to be proactive in addressing these issues.

If you and your team have had some basic level of race awareness training then you’d probably be interested in our Advanced Race Awareness Training which provides more in-dept training on race.

If you and your company is looking for more specific diversity and inclusion training, you’re in the right place!

At Mission Diverse we offer a mix of training and consulting services that support a range of protected characteristics.

We also produce bespoke training and consulting programmes and workshops to meet the unique needs of your organisation.

Below we have detailed our other available training services. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, thats absolutely fine, just contact us and we’ll put together a bespoke diversity and inclusion training session for you.  

Our other Training Services

Now more than ever it is not enough to not be racist. Now is the time to be actively anti-racist. You may be unaware of the existence or impact of racism 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 racism within their organisation may experience:

  • Low retention of black and minority ethnic employees.
  • Diminished mental health of minority staff.
  • Loss of sales revenue and customers due to racial coverage and bad PR.
  • Toxic work culture.
  • High turnover in staff due to toxic racially insensitive work culture.
  • Negative impact on recruitment efforts.

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!).
