"Joanna and Richard offer wise and pragmatic advice on all aspects of equality and diversity. Having recently started in post; I wanted to bring in some training that would help our Board Members really understand their responsibilities. Joanna and Richard delivered the legal and regulatory aspects in a concise and tangible way; but also really tailored the training to ensure that it was vibrant, interactive and practical with the wealth of experience they bring to the subject. Circle has also benefited from being able to ask their advice on specific areas and projects, such as embedding diversity within our procurement activities. I would not hesitate to recommend them and they are a pleasure to work with."
Jen Smith, Group Head of Diversity Circle Housing Group
"Richard and Joanna facilitated a two day Social Housing Equality Framework session for tenant Equality Panel and Board members, followed by a day to review the company’s evidence. Feedback was excellent, with particularly positive feedback from the Chair of the Panel. The training was invaluable in helping the group carry out a sound self assessment."
Vincent Bryce, Equality and Diversity Manager, Nottingham City Homes
"We commissioned Richard and Joanna to help us critically review and refresh our approach to equality & diversity across the organisation and found them to be extremely knowledgeable and astute in their assessment. They carried out a full audit based on the SHEF, helped us reshape our strategic direction and redesigned our approach to Equality Assessments. Feedback from staff they have worked with has been very positive and we are confident their input has helped us to develop a firm foundation for future success. Overall, highly recommended!"
