embraceEDI has been established by professionals working in strategic leadership EDI roles for professionals like you. You can therefore be confident of a wealth of experience, knowledge and support at your fingertips where you are part of a nationally recognised standard for your EDI work.


Our Vision


Our vision is to ensure that our members are professionally supported to recognise and respond to anti discriminatory practice; to raise cultural awareness and improve inclusivity in all aspects of their organisation.


The support we offer focuses on two key themes for your organisation - your workforce and how you deliver services.


We believe that these are the priorities for any organisation wanting to achieve success when responding to the modern day challenges faced by EDI professionals.
