About Us

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) in the workplace is a no brainer. Likewise, it makes sense in business terms too. Studies show an 80% improvement in business performance among those with high diversity levels. When people feel included and able to reach their full potential, they are more engaged.

About Charlotte Sweeney Associates

Since Charlotte Sweeney Associates (CSA) launched in 2012, we’ve been busy leading change from the inside in businesses and organisations, both in the UK and across the world.

We’ve worked in partnership with hundreds of companies, we’ve hosted heaps of events, forums and seminars, published numerous reports - as well as a bestselling DE&I book that has been shortlisted by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) for the Management Book of the Year.

CSA has also been recognised as one of the Top Ten DE&I Consultants by The Global Diversity List and The Daily Telegraph.

Our team of consultants are motivated by practical insider experience, having all worked in DE&I within organisations around the world. We are a critical friend to our clients, working collaboratively to challenge and make change happen, supporting them throughout the journey.

From strategic advice to apps, all our solutions have an overriding aim to empower organisations to unleash their inclusive and powerful cultures.

Manifesto

Unleashing Powerful Cultures

We understand businesses are keen to leverage DE&I as a business enabler. Done well, embedding DE&I unleashes a powerful culture that attracts and retains the best talent and reflects the evolving demands of consumers and markets. Your business will also perform better financially.

We believe that your powerful culture is present within your company already. We’ll work with you to release this potential and create an inclusive culture where everyone works at their best. Who wouldn’t want that?

We love working with companies who are amazing at what they do, regardless of their DE&I maturity, and are ready to be proactive and make meaningful change.

We are a consultancy, led by Charlotte Sweeney OBE, and our global team of consultants adopt a best in class approach in everything that they do. We have extensive experience leading DE&I change with organisations, so know how best to support you. Think of us as your team of DE&I critical friends, expect open and honest conversations from the outset.

We guarantee incisive support and eliminate the confusion and complexity around DE&I. We pride ourselves on being productive, delivering effective, practical programmes globally, which drive sustainable change.

We encourage you to be disruptive and to create an outstanding organisational culture that others will aspire to and that you can be proud of.

Be an inclusive disruptor, be transparent, open, courageous, bias aware, curious and consistent.

Charlotte Sweeney OBE
