Above Difference Limited was founded with a single mission: to bring a fresh, new and effective approach to Diversity and Inclusion in the UK's Public Sector.


Our Mission

Our mission is to work with leaders and teams to develop Culturally Intelligent led organisations across the UK Public Sector that deliver compassionate and inclusive leadership for its workforce and communities.

We believe a Culturally Intelligent organisation is one that sees the diversity of its workforce and stakeholders as an exciting opportunity for creativity, innovation, and productivity.

It is one where leaders and teams have learned how to leverage their diversity to work effectively across cross-cultural boundaries an in doing so, develop solutions and services that make the world a better place.

In these organisations, staff from all backgrounds and stakeholders feel valued, respected and able to achieve their full potential within the context of the services delivered.

We approach each of our clients with fresh and empathetic eyes to develop customized, unique strategies to enhance their Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategies.
