Advancing Equity            

Attracting, retaining, and developing women of executive capability and colour

As a certified black female owned consultancy, we use our lived learning experience, expertise within the world of talent management and commercial know how, to transform our clients’ organisational effectiveness by building inclusive senior leadership teams, led by women with executive capability and colour.

We are challenging and changing how those at the intersectionality of diversity are recruited and retained.

Our ROI’s are exceptional, as we return £3 for every £1 spent with us, by placing candidates who outperform their male counterparts across profitability, team engagement and decision-making metrics.

We are leading the way in how organisations attract, retain, and develop women with executive capability and colour – see us on Stage in London in March 2024
