Diverse Matters: Diversity Made Simple
Diverse Matters is a specialist training consultancy. We train organisations and people to approach diversity and disability (both visible and non-visible) with confidence and strength.
We use training workshops, tailored seminars and interactive events to help individuals and organisations embrace diversity and disability, training them on how to set up initiatives and structures to support themselves and the people around them.
Founded by Yasmin Sheikh, Diverse Matters works with organisations such as Thomson Reuters, Mayer Brown, Eversheds-Sutherland and JP Morgan to improve organisational performance, staff development and retention through embracing diversity.
“Diverse Matters is the bridge to enable better communication between employers and people with disabilities/health conditions (both visible and non-visible) leading to confidence on both sides.
Our services provide confidence to organisations to tap into diverse talent by retaining and recruiting the best talent thereby increasing profitability and staff satisfaction.”
