Build cultures of equality for the workforce of tomorrow

I am the founder and CEO of Equality Forward, is a global consultancy headquartered in London and New York, which specializes in building cultures of equality at work.

Based on two decades of experience and research, we have built diagnostic tools, workshops, coaching and development programmes that will challenge and engage employees and leaders to build cultures of equality.

Creating a culture of equality is not a ‘nice to have’, it is a fundamental business imperative. The number one barrier to advancing diversity and inclusion is the denial of inequality at work, which is the belief that workplaces work for everyone in the same way. When employees believe workplaces work for everyone in the same way, because everyone is the same, they deny difference and different experiences of working life.

For example, a 2018 study conducted by Business in the Community found that 33% of black employees believe their ethnicity will be a barrier to their next career move, in stark contrast to just 1% of white employees. The challenge is most leaders do not know how to create cultures of equality, or what it means to lead in an inclusive way. Likewise employees do not understand what it means to practice inclusion as part of their job.

Companies cannot simply launch off-the-shelf solutions and expect results. Instead, they need to treat inclusion like any other business priority by engaging men and women to own the solution, which requires three key elements:

People

Enabling employees to put 
equality into practice

Leadership

Assessing, developing and enabling
leaders to create cultures of equality

Culture

Assessing, developing and building
cultures of equality

Operations

Make inclusion the way
your workplace works

At Equality Forward, we bring together research, experience, proven strategies, and solutions needed to develop every individual’s ability to practice inclusion and value diversity. Creating cultures of equality, where employees can be themselves at work and will be valued for that requires rigorous assessment and substantive solutions, which is where we can help.
