We are privileged to work across both the public and private sector including many companies in the FTSE 100 & 250 and Fortune 1000.

Every organisation has a different starting point and a different story to tell – some are just beginning to recognise how biases and stereotypes are embedded in their business structure, whilst others are well on their way, with great flexible working policies, mentoring programmes and support networks for their employees. We work alongside clients, becoming a part of their journey towards equality.

Here are a few case studies that highlight the type of work we do and what our clients say we do best.


We loved training everyone in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Lidl from the Executive Board through to employees on the shop floor. By providing everyone with tailored training that is based on the same practical tools and inclusive language, the company is able to move forward together.

That’s 22,000 people across 900 stores and 13 regional distribution centres! Take a look at this video to hear what we did for them, how the culture changed at Lidl and what they they thought of working with Mix.
