Client Testimonials

Cleo and the team at Mission Diverse delivered a brilliant session for their Intersectionality Training day for our team. The session was informative, fun and allowed us to have challenging yet useful conversations in a safe space. The considered structure of the day meant a significant volume of information was communicated to us, without it feeling overwhelming or draining. Considering the amount of information there was to take in, it didn’t feel draining. This training has given our organisation us a lot of food for thought and made us feel more confident in bringing positive action into our organisation.

Following the Bar Council’s recommendation that chambers engage in Intersectionality Training, we researched providers and found Mission Diverse. Their website seemed to tick all the boxes we were looking to cover and having spoken to Cleo Morris on the telephone, I felt confident that Mission Diverse would be able to offer a course that covered our needs. It didn’t disappoint. Both members and staff attended the session which was engaging and inclusive and Cleo herself was first class in the way she presented. We will definitely use Mission Diverse again where appropriate and I’m delighted to recommend them to any other organisation looking for Intersectionality Training.

FAQ

Intersectionality Training is designed to aid you with the understanding of the various ways intersectionality and intersectional discrimination can affect your organisation.

Diversity and Inclusion is an important and extremely beneficial ethos for any organisation, however people are not monoliths and can have more than one diverse identity. It is important then, to understand how these diverse identities intersect with one another, and the compounding effect they can have on an individual when they belong to multiple oppressed or disadvantaged groups (eg. female, ethnic minority and LGBTQ+) . Understanding the challenges intersectionality can impose on an individual is essential in helping you to cultivate an inclusive work environment.

Are you and your team new to intersectionality training? Take a look at our Diversity and Inclusion Foundation Training, for a beginners introduction to diversity and inclusion, and create a base from which to build upon with Intersectionality Training at a future date.

At Mission Diverse we believe in connecting companies with communities. Unlike some organisations, we are a non-profit company, who use the money you pay us for our training programmes, to reinvest in our Local Community Employability and Enterprise programmes.

Our employability and enterprise programmes provide education, mentoring and personal development training to people from underrepresented and disadvantaged communities. By doing this we hope to provide those from underrepresented communities with the necessary skills and knowledge to enter entrepreneurship and the workplace (…or maybe come and work in your company!).
