Diversity Equity and Inclusion Training

Helping organisations create environments where ALL employees feel included, valued and heard.

Tasneem has a fresh approach to delivering diversity and inclusivity training which we can hopefully build on in future.

We do need to ensure that the decision-makers are representative of the people they make decisions for, for example higher level management and working groups need to include, or be informed by, those who will be users of that service or affected by that project.

It also made me think about how we’re communicating, and how we make the opportunity to contribute accessible not only to people who speak various languages in different proficiencies, but to those who have different levels of ability and disability, varying access to technology or who are disengaged with the council.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training for corporate, government and not-for-profit clients


Research has proven that diverse teams outperform non-diverse teams, especially at executive level. Ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to deliver above average financial returns.

Diversity is about making sure different groups and genders are represented in the workplace while inclusion means valuing and integrating the contributions, presence and viewpoints of different groups.

Developing a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace can lead to revenue growth, higher employee retention, out-of-the-box thinking and problem solving, whilst also attracting diverse clients and candidates.

Tasneem also helps organisations create DE&I strategies and policies.

Client appreciation

Tasneem was really approachable, professional and understood my concerns straight away. 
It was great to have her professional reassurance and leave with some practical advice (short term and long term) which I felt confident to implement.
I would definitely recommend Tasneem’s support for leadership strategies.

NGO, London, UK

On behalf of ASEAN Society, I would like to thank you again for talking to us about diversity and anti-racism. 
Your passion really showed the importance of these topics and many of the things you discussed truly resonated with others and I. 
Cultural immersion would not have been the same without you!

ASEAN Conference

We are extremely grateful to you for having brought the diversity lens to the forefront of the discussion and I think everyone is in heated agreement that diversity on boards leads to better decision making and there is certainly an appetite for change.

You generously shared many thought provoking insights, ideas and leadership experience with our attendees of NFP Directors, CEOs, Observers & alumni.”

Great suggestion on adding diversity to the boards and connecting to KPI, to implement changes verses a token diversity consultant. 
Good simple ideas like look at your bookshelf and who wrote the books, is is primarily from a white (male or female) lens, make changes to listen to other diverse voices.

We barely scratched the surface of this complex and complicated topic, and the time flew by! Looking forward to more conversations of this nature, and would love to see this team do a series of some kind.

International Association for Business Communications

Your insightful and thought-provoking speech not only set the tone for the day but generated a great deal of discussion amongst the participants. 

It inspired schools to develop greater understanding of tackling intersectionality and realise the importance of intercultural knowledge, diversity in leadership, and opportunities for action for their schools. 

I personally took a lot from your words and have been thinking about your presentation ever since, particularly in terms of my role as a leader in supporting an education system that is supportive of, and empowering for, students from all backgrounds.

Department of Education

We really enjoyed your keynote speech on inclusive leadership, particularly around disrupting systems of privilege, making the most of multicultural talent and moving from tolerance to understanding. 

Thank you for also sharing your personal experiences.

And thank you for being part of the panel. We have heard glowing feedback about this discussion, and there was a genuine sense of engagement from the audience. 

Your advice and insights made for an extremely valuable discussion.

From myself and the team here at MAQ, thank you for making the second Speaker Series forum another successful event.

Multicultural Affairs Queensland & Engagement

Great session and privileged to hear Tasneem’s personal story.

What stuck with me were the statements: “Bad things happen when good people say and do nothing”. And “Seek the good where you find it”.

For me, Tasneem’s presentation reinforced my understanding and tolerance of cultural and religious diversity.

Leadership can be demonstrated through a variety of approaches, but the speaker showed that having a passion for what you believe in, as well as having a “can do” attitude, can make all the difference.

I loved the way Tasneem peeled back the layers of stereotyping and perceptions that inhibit all of us.

I appreciated the open, personal way in which she shared her experiences and knowledge.

Please continue your talks; they make difference.
