Philosophy


We work with people who share our values:

Equality and diversity aren’t fluff. They are a key part of healthy societies.

Working to make public and private spaces more inclusive is hard but far from impossible. Make a commitment, follow through, and the rest will follow.

Collaboration between researchers, brands and creatives is a necessary ingredient in the quest towards equality and diversity.

Empathy, kindness and intellectual rigour must go hand in hand to achieve the kind of change we need.

Change is a process. We will trip and fall but we will be there to pick each other up when that happens.

Jargon gets in the way of people talking to one another. That’s why you won’t find any buzzwords or sector speech here. If you do, we’ll be very grateful if you could let us know so we can deal with the intruder right away.

I’m on board with all that but I’m still not sure you’re for me

Whether you’re a large brand struggling to represent same sex love on TV, a small bookshop looking to get knowledge in the hands of more people or a SMI searching for your purpose, we can, indeed, help you.

We apply the same rigour, care and focus to all of our clients and our pricing fits the size of your organisation. We think it’s fair and, if you got here, we know you do too. Get in touch.  

Hang on, who are you again?

The Inclusion and Diversity Academy was founded at the end of 2020 by Liv, a Creative Director living between Rome and London. She studied social anthropology and media at Goldsmiths University, founded a festival about the Moon with Margaret Atwood, revived the ancient art of oral storytelling with Words of Colour and Arts Council England, and curated campaigns for the likes of Sport England, the London Mayor’s Office, the Institute of Physics and the Royal Borough of Greenwich to name a few.

In 2017 she became an Arts Marketing Association Audience Diversity Fellow for her work on diversity and literature, she trained in audience development with the UK’s most cutting edge fundraising agency, and regularly speaks in public about issues of diversity and inclusion. Her creative approach is grounded in social anthropology, communications, cultural history and western philosophy, all of which she calls upon to design and deliver content.

Depending on the size and scope of your project, Livia collaborates with people from different disciplines. Besides her, there are three more people in the core team: Ahmed Akasha: our Art Director, Alessia: our Chief Researcher and Duncan: our Director of Technology.

Ida’s network includes artists, mediators, data scientists, entrepreneurs, writers, business executives, anthropologists, philosophers, designers, trend researchers, psychologists, change makers. Depending on the size and needs of your project, we come together in different forms and shapes, on a project by project basis, to help you imagine and communicate change.
