Irish Centre for Diversity

The Irish Centre for Diversity was founded in 2016 to support businesses
across Ireland in all areas of their Diversity and Inclusion journey. Our team of
experienced advisers and trainers have worked with organisations across all
industries delivering Diversity and Inclusion training and consultancy.

With the support of Ibec and the DCU Centre of Excellence for Diversity we
have introduced the first all-encompassing Diversity and Inclusion mark for
Irish businesses; “Investors in Diversity”.
By working through our three levels, it offers organisations a clear and structured framework to transform diversity practices and culture. Using cutting-edge tools and services that measure and inform your organisation on workplace Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE)
