We enable organisations to sign a Charter and then work towards achieving and maintaining the Diversity Mark – an accreditation which companies from all sectors are using to publicly declare their commitment to Diversity and Inclusion.

The Charter follows a methodology of self-assessment and it prioritises continuous progression, with targets and goals set by each individual organisation.

Widespread adoption of the Charter will make a genuine difference to diversity & workplace culture and help to create inclusive workplaces where all employees can be themselves and achieve their full potential.
