Testimonials for Diverse Minds
Isabella Grable, Head of HR, Lightful
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Training helped our team to reach together a level of knowledge and talk about this important topic in a safe environment.

Learning together gives the chance to hold each other accountable!
Kat McCarthy, Senior People Change Executive at Far Fetch
This session was so insightful and interactive. Especially compared to other foundational Mental Health Training that I’ve been on. We had the opportunity for great discussions without feeling rushed or forced. It felt a lot more informative and relatable to put your learnings in practice than any other training I’ve been on!
Cara Perry, CEO, Leicester Rape Crisis

Melissa Hardy, People Advisor, ASOS Customer Care
Leyla was an excellent facilitator for the courses she has run at ASOS. She clearly has in depth knowledge of mental health and is very passionate about the topic.

Everyone came away feeling energised and equipped to have conversations around mental health. We’ve received really positive feedback from all participants and are so thankful to Leyla for sharing her knowledge to enable us to better support mental health in the workplace.
