About Diverse Minds

Every employer and organisation knows when staff are mentally healthy and happy at work they thrive. However, this can be far easier said than truly embedded. Sometimes, It can feel daunting to know where to start to make this a reality. Especially when there are deadlines looming and targets to meet.

We can help you answer these questions and create solutions that work for you.

Diverse Minds in Your Organisation

I understand that organisations have to spin plates and managers are under a lot of pressure. This is how Diverse Minds was born. Diverse Minds is founded by me, Leyla Okhai, a coach, mediator, inclusion and wellbeing practitioner with over seventeen years’ experience.

As the former Head of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Centre at Imperial College London. I have been a senior leader, knowing what it’s like to navigate this tightrope. As the CEO of Diverse Minds I have worked with ASOS.com, FarFetch, Science Museum Group, International Rescue Committee, JKR Global, Mother London, North East London NHS Trust, Tetra Tech Europe, and the University of London to name a few to improve mental health and wellbeing. I also coach individuals on a 1-2-1 basis.
