Emberin in a nutshell

We don't understand why over $8 Billion is spent annually on limited results. The current approach isn't working. We are taking a different approach based on the science of building new habits - the INCLUSION HABIT!


We know that creating an inclusive culture will never become a real priority unless we win the head space of senior leaders with a more compelling business case. We are all about the numbers and the measurement of bottom-line impact.


We help organisations create a new story which joins ALL of the things they are trying to do - including values, behaviours and culture - the story shows that INCLUSION is the glue that is part of everything - and then let's embed it!

The programs and services that Emberin has developed to support an ROI focused diversity and inclusion strategy are:

Emberin is a global leading organisation in diversity and inclusion education.

At Emberin we have worked with over 250 of the largest organisations in the world over the last decade and a half. Our obsession has been to support organisations to get results. Our frustration has been approaches to D&I which get us know where. We have continued to push the envelope and take new approaches because we believe it’s not sustainable to keep trying the same approach and expect a different result. And the results are miserable when compared to the efforts which have been put in and the money that has been spent. The truth is that the ROI of D&I approaches global has been minimal.

Our approach is to demonstrate the bigger business case for inclusion and its connectivity to organisational culture and strategy, not just diversity and inclusion. Our observation is that most leaders understand the value of inclusion and have a strong desire to be inclusive, but they are stuck in their default habit. Based on the science of habit shift and behavioural change we teach them the 6 new habits of being inclusive and we embed this via a habit building approach. We measure impact based on ‘experiments’ undertaken by leaders where they must report on actual actions and impact.

Global experience and reach.

We have undertaken work in diversity & inclusion in Europe, USA, Japan, Korea, Singapore, South Africa, USA, Australia, NZ, South America, South East Asia – with over 30,000 senior leader connections on LinkedIn from around the world.
