Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Consultancy and Training

We 100% get that you may not have an ED&I strategy in place, and you also may not know what to do as it's a minefield and your situation is unique to your business. Anxiety can set it. Fear of trying to do right but ending up doing harm to your brand is something we often hear.


Don’t worry, we’ve got you. Relax. As long as the intent to acknowledge change may be required, we can help you take the necessary baby steps one day at a time, one baby step after another, to begin a perhaps slow but meaningful journey to putting an ED&I focus or strategy in place that is bespoke to your needs.

Our experts are well placed to move the dial at the right pace with you; this is what they do, and we are privileged and delighted to be able to facilitate this for you.

At the Black Data Professional Network (BDPN), we understand that achieving true diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace is a journey, and we are here to guide organizations every step of the way. Our DEI consulting and training services are designed to empower businesses to create environments where every individual's potential is recognized and valued.


Our Approach
BDPN takes a holistic approach to DEI, recognizing that it encompasses a broad spectrum of considerations. We tailor our services to meet the unique needs and challenges of each organization. Our approach consists of three core elements:


Assessment and Strategy Development

We begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment of your organization's current DEI landscape. This includes evaluating policies, practices, culture, and employee experiences.
Based on our findings, we work collaboratively with your leadership team to develop a customized DEI strategy that aligns with your organizational goals and values.

Training and Education

Our team of experienced DEI experts offers engaging and informative training sessions for employees at all levels. These sessions are designed to enhance awareness, build cultural competence, and equip your team with practical tools to drive change.
Topics may include unconscious bias, microaggressions, inclusive leadership, and more.

Ongoing Support and Accountability

DEI is not a one-time initiative; it requires continuous effort and commitment. BDPN provides ongoing support to ensure the successful implementation of your DEI strategy.
We help you establish metrics and accountability measures to track progress and adjust strategies as needed.
