Diversity Matters 2001 to 2021 worked for a more inclusive society, developing capacity, skills and strengthening networks. We aimed for communities that work for everyone. We have come to a natural end (see about us pages  for more information), a big thank you to all our fans, friends, collaborators and partners over the years.

A deeper more democratic approach is needed and we are developing new ways to learn together and how to co-design the services and communities we want to see.

Lack of inclusion has a big impact. We not only deny everyone access to the gifts, talents and contributions of those we exclude but we also create a poverty of relationship too. Our differences can be the fuel for our greatest creativity and they make for stronger relationships, communities, workplaces and institutions.

“Deep Democracy is our sense that the world is here to help us to become our entire selves, and that we are here to help the world to become whole.”
