Equipping Leaders to Champion Diversity

Inspiring Greater Diversity & Inclusion


Hayley is a prominent keynote speaker and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) consultant to Executive Boards throughout the UK, Europe and the US. She is a subject matter expert on DEI, Unconscious Bias and Inclusive Leadership. Hayley is the CEO of Mix Diversity and the innovative Mix Learn DEI online learning platform.

When she is not speaking, she spends her days consulting - helping organisations to harness the power implicit in a diverse and inclusive workforce through strategy design and company-wide training design.

Hayley is an expert at making people think differently so that they WANT to take action to be more inclusive. That’s why many organisations engage her to work with their Board and Senior Leadership teams. Previous engagements include Capital One, Experian, Lidl, Boston Scientific, Konica Minolta, Roche and Western Digital.

Invite Hayley to your next event and it will be...


If you can’t see it or acknowledge it, you can’t change it or manage it. Through illuminating stories and research, Hayley helps leaders reach the point where they see the need to take up the mantle of Diversity Champions.


There’s nothing worse than having to sit through a tiresome presentation when there’s a pressing to-do list waiting. When Hayley does delve into science and theory, it’s always to support a practical real-life application.


Organisations – and people – don't change overnight. Hayley’s aim is to meet people where they are and equip them to take the next step, whether that be challenging their own biases, or stepping out of comfort zones.

What people are saying about Hayley...

Hayley presented at our Senior Management Conference on Unconscious Bias and Inclusive Leadership. We have had fantastic feedback in terms of the great content which was delivered in both an engaging and authentic style. For example, ‘This was fascinating, brilliantly presented and directly applicable in the workplace.’

Hayley was great at using stories to illustrate the subject and made it accessible for the audience, most of whom had no knowledge of Unconscious Bias before the session. She spoke with humility about her own biases and was able to help others start to see theirs without being accusatory. Her style is conversational and relaxed.

Hayley recently presented at our EuroCACS conference for our Connecting Women Leaders in Technology programme. Her approach was energising, informative and presented with style and humour. The audience left with practical advice on how to improve gender balance in our workplaces and great feedback!
