d&i Leaders are pleased to partner with and support a number of charity organisations. Please take the time to visit their websites to find out how you can get involved.
Catch22 is a social business, a not for profit business with a social mission. For over 200 years we have designed and delivered services that build resilience and aspiration in people and communities.
We work across three strategic hubs; Employability & Skills, Justice & Education and Young People, Families and Communities.
Underpinning all our work is the belief that everyone can thrive if they have three key things: good people around them, a safe place to live and a purpose in life. We call these our ‘3 Ps.’

Schools OUT UK
d&i Leaders is proud to be supporting Schools OUT UK, an education charity with a goal to make our schools and educational institutions safe spaces for our LGBT+ communities. d&i Leaders will be donating £2 for every delegate place sold at our annual LGBT+ at Work Conference.
The over-arching aim of Schools OUT is to make our schools safe and inclusive for everyone. To do this we need:
- To provide both a formal and informal support network for all people who want to raise the issue of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and heterosexism in education.
- To campaign on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans issues as they affect education and those in education.
- To research, debate and stimulate curriculum development on LGBT issues.
- To work towards unison between teacher and lecturer unions and other professional stakeholders in education
- To promote equality, safety and visibility in education for LGBT people and all the protected characteristics

Global Diversity & Inclusion Benchmarks
At The Centre for Global Inclusion, our mission is to serve as a resource for research and education for individuals and organizations in their quest to improve diversity and inclusion practices around the world. As a US 501c3 public charity, The Centre is also the home of the Global Diversity & Inclusion Benchmarks: Standards for Organizations Around the World (or for short, the GDIB).
The GDIB helps organizations determine strategy and measure progress in managing diversity and fostering inclusion. It is a free downloadable 80-page booklet that can be used by submitting the Permission Agreement. The GDIB was written by its co-authors and The Centre’s founding board members Julie O’Mara, Board Chair and President, Alan Richter, Ph.D., Treasurer, and 95 Expert Panelists. Among the 95 Expert Panelists is The Centre’s third and final founding member, Nene Molefi, Secretary.
Along with the GDIB comes a suite of User Tools that can aid in approaching and analyzing its contents. Tips and suggestions that outline everything from how to present it to implementing it in every day situations are available as well. It makes no difference if you’re a fortune 500 or a budding small business, the GDIB can help with measuring diversity and fostering inclusion.
d&i Leaders is pleased to be officially supporting the use of the GDIB and helping to encourage more organizastions to use this free tool.
