The Diversity Trust CIC

The Diversity Trust CIC is a Community Interest Company established in 2012 in the UK. Our mission is to ‘influence social change to create a fairer and safer society’. The Diversity Trust has undertaken large scale auditing, consultancy projects, research, training and strategic projects across the corporate, public, private, voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors across the UK as well as internationally. We are specialists in equality, diversity, equity and inclusion.

As an equalities-led organisation, our Executive and Non-Executive Directors, staff and consultants are all members of a wide range of protected characteristic groups including Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, LGBT, Disabled and Neurodivergent and Gender diverse people. The Diversity Trust supports all minoritised and marginalised communities in our society and is especially supportive of the Black Lives Matter, Trans Lives Matter and Women’s movements, thinking and acting intersectionally. Our network of consultants brings rich, lived experiences that are critical to understanding the issues of bias and how it helps create structures of institutional and systemic discrimination e.g., racism in our society.

Our clients include individuals, businesses, and organisations across the corporate, public, and social purpose sectors. We have a wealth of knowledge and experience in policy development, project management, research, evaluation, and training. We are able to advise our client, and partner organisations, on employment and management, as well as service design, development and delivery.
