Channel a passion for change into meaningful action.

Looking to design a Diversity and Inclusion strategy, not sure where to start. At YSYS we create thoughtful, measurable and practical Diversity Action Plans  for startups and growth-stage companies, looking to implement process and solutions which lead to transformative change. 


What do we do: 

  • We deliver, thoughtful, measurable and practical Diversity Action Plans - with a focus on their implementation and impact being owned by the whole organisation. We do this for all participants in the tech ecosystem, but with a particular focus on startups, accelerators and growth stage companies. 

What makes us different: 

  • We take a community-informed approach to help you develop a practical and impactful D&I Strategy.  We believe it is important to co-design your plans with the people directly affected at the center.

How do they work:

  • Our Diversity Action plans are used to assess and analyse your organisation across four key pillars: people, policy, brand and culture. We use a mix of qualitative and quantitative data gathered through surveys, workshops, focus groups and more, to form a bespoke list of recommendations and actions for your organisation. 

Expected outcomes: 

  • Our Diversity Action Plans seek to formalise your commitment to being an inclusive organisation that values and reflects the diversity of the community you serve, and will in turn ensure you:

    • Have a clear roadmap to support you work towards transformative change

    • Measure what success looks like and work toward continuous improvement 

    • Empower everyone in your organisation to become a diversity and inclusion champions.
