When founder and CEO of Diversifying Group, Cynthia Davis, secured her first job in recruitment, she found herself the only person of colour in a firm of 120 consultants, and one of three women. The misogyny and racism she faced over the years, often under the guise of "banter", escalated her frustration with the inequalities of the workplace. Cynthia took matters into her own hands and started her own business which put Diversity and Inclusion at the forefront. “All those misogynistic comments and racist jokes strengthened my resolve to change the world of work for the better," she says.
With a small amount of savings and her infant baby, Diversifying Group was born in 2015 at Cynthia's kitchen table. Going from strength to strength, clients now include Amazon Prime, TikTok, eBay, Virgin Atlantic, BAFTA, the BBC, the National Theatre, and many more.
