Our open programme is a chance for people managers in the tech sector to come together to develop their inclusive leadership mindset, skillset and toolset in order to get better results.
Unlike unconscious bias training, which can leave people wondering what to do next, we provide practical tools, insights, accountability, guidance and clear actions participants can take to ensure everyone progresses on their own leadership journey.
We are committed to creating a transformation in each and every one of our programme participants. We will do this through:
- Interactive group workshops in small cohorts to support targeted learning.
- Group sessions for participants from across companies participating in the programme to share insights and experiences.
- Inspiration for deep self reflection.
- Targeted ideas, content and exercises between sessions to embed learning and inspire action.
- Access to premium Diversily content and frameworks to inspire further insight and action.
- Access to a private programme group chat to facilitate community spirit, networking and collaboration.
- Accountability buddies to accelerate progress and help development long after the programme finishes.
We are here to help!
We can also offer optional, additional 1:1 or group coaching or consultancy sessions. This can be hugely beneficial to help participants or the organisation more broadly apply learning and get expert, tailored support. Once you have enrolled in the programme we can discuss your specific needs.

Sessions are all virtual and are typically 2 hours long with 2-3 weeks between sessions to allow you to easily fit the programme around your existing commitments. All sessions will be between 12-3pm BST/GMT. The main sessions (but not the breakouts) will be recorded and only shared with programme participants. We are also taking advance booking for our Q1 2023 programme.
What are the programme fees and how do I pay?
The programme costs £1295 + VAT per participant. To pay for your programme participation you can purchase this programme online or Diversily can issue an invoice to your organisation for a group booking.

Can I join from anywhere in the world?
Yes. Our facilitators are based in the UK but we have had participants from all around the world. All programme sessions will run between 12pm-3pm BST/GMT. If you can make the time work for your timezone, you can participate.
Can we run a programme just for my organisation?
Yes. Contact us to discuss your requirements. This approach might suit organisations who are interested in the programme but are not eligible for the open programme as they are not in the tech industry or organisations that would like us to tailor the programme content to meet your specific needs.
I do not work in tech. Is this programme right for me?
Our programme is open to people leading teams who work in technical or non technical roles in tech businesses or within tech, digital or innovation teams across sectors. If your organisation is in a different sector contact us about the possibility to put on a separate programme for your organisation, eco system or industry.
How is this different to other leadership or diversity and inclusion training?
This programme is completely unique. We are not aware of any programme like it that focuses in on developing 'inclusive intelligence' to empower leaders in tech. Unlike unconscious bias training, which can leave people wondering what to do next, we provide practical tools, insights, accountability, guidance and clear actions you can take to ensure everyone progresses on their own leadership journey.
Can multiple people from my organisation sign up?
Yes, we encourage it! The advantage of joining this open programme is to benefit from the diversity of participation, to hear a wider range of perspectives and to build your professional network. However you are more likely to be able to drive meaningful change within your organisation if all people managers participate. You can sign up individually online or contact us to discuss a group booking.
