When you know being inclusive is

the right thing to do

 

Start with your why

?

What are your drivers and benefits for being inclusive

Knowing your why for inclusion, influences what your inclusive actions are.

 

It's the starting point, that determines your route map.

Helping inform your discussions

Research can show us what’s happening, other research can show us the solutions. We connect the two, translate the relevancy, into quick to read formats, so you can access the dispersed and vast inclusion info, with minimal draw on your time.

 

Facts, research, evidence-based solutions, or others experiences. 

Asking thought provoking questions

We ask questions to help direct and provoke discussion, to identify your why.

Q  Why do you want to be more inclusive?

Q  How can being more inclusive, help deliver your overall investment agenda?
Q  Is recruiting a current challenge you are facing? Would diversifying both sides of the table, attract more women to work in investment? 

Q  What social change influences are impacting the investment environment?

Q  What is the process in the critical 'can we work together' decision stage?

For investors & advisors with a pipeline

Do you come across businesses who are not quite ready for funding, or your timing fits a later timescale, yet you want to keep in touch and see them develop? 

 

Develop & keep your pipeline 

By sending them our way, we'll work with the business owners and keep in touch with you, for when they are ready and/or your timing is right. 

 

Coach founders

See a clear view on the potential

No-one wants to miss out on the next big deal, by mistaking the potential

 

Where you consider the potential is less clear, it may be down to gender differences.

We coach the founders to speak your language, to fully convey their

leadership capabilities, and their business growth aspirations.

(whether we're actually different underneath, I don't believe we are, though we do experience a difference in cultural expectations that may influence our behaviours and language)

See the potential

Even the strongest of women can succumb to stereotype expectations when stepping into a male dominated environment.

 

We offer tools for founders to keep their steel, be themselves and lean in.  

Language differences and the interpretation of meaning can differ, we teach founders to speak your language (and vice versa). 

Entrepreneurial characteristics are displayed in many differing guises. 

We encourage founders to tell their story, to portray the characteristics you're looking for, and be upfront with other characteristics they have found are significant for growing their business.
