Versiti have led the way in research and strategy on issues relating to equality, diversity and inclusion, and with hard-to-reach, under-served and seldom-heard audiences and social groups in the UK since 2017. Subsequently, our award-winning team have gone on to work with the likes of Channel 4, Jaguar Land Rover, The Care Quality Commission, RNIB, Youth Futures Foundation, Penguin Random House, EY, Women in Sport and Unilever among others.

From the start, it was abundantly clear to use that the unheard and under-served people in the UK were about to become the very people pushing for and making change happen. Our experiences told us that many organisations were nervous or unsure of how to engage and understand these communities, so we set about helping them strive toward greater equality and inclusion.

Our work sees us engage and understand people from diverse and minority groups defined by race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, identity and disability to understand attitudes and behaviours, improve communications, springboard new brands, products and services, and create greater inclusion.

“Working with Versiti has been absolutely brilliant. We felt supported from the first meeting. Versiti brought innovative thinking, methodological rigour and creativity to the project. It has generated a wealth of actionable insights that will contribute to our ambition of making society more inclusive for blind people.  Versiti’s commitment went well beyond contractual obligations and we feel they have been fantastic at combining the real depth of thinking that academics usually bring, the pace and practical mindset of business, and the values and passion more usual in the third sector. I recommend Versiti wholeheartedly and would be really enthused about working with them again.”

“A big thank you for producing a great piece of work in such a tight time frame. Our bosses have been really impressed and the CEO is quoting from it. But more importantly, it will have a direct impact on how Channel 4 addresses diversity and inclusion in all of its programmes from here on in.”

Head of Audience Research & Insight
Channel 4

 

"Versiti shone through as the obvious choice for us, bringing a strong academic understanding of the complicated world of diversity together with the practical means of delivering appropriate research, something which we found to be unique in the market research industry - seriously unique. We’ve been impressed with their expertise and business sense: they get to the hypotheses quickly, deliver genuine cultural insight, identify opportunities and provide clear direction to get closer to new audiences - and they are not afraid to challenge us and break down our preconceptions. I strongly recommend the team and look forward to collaborating again in the future.”  

Steve Hill, Global Customer Insights Director
Jaguar Land Rover

 

"Versiti led us through a critical time in our strategic review process. We needed support to embed DI&E into our future strategy and Versiti helped us to become more aware of where we were in our DI&E journey and where we wanted to get to. As a result, we were able to shape our future vision for DI&E and brought the leadership team along on the journey."
