TechDiversity and Cultural Infusion have formed a new partnership to deliver workforce benefits based on common goals and visions for a more diverse future. The partnership kicked off with joint initiatives presented to government and organisations keen to measure the diversity of their workforce, to use data for evidence-based action, and to analyse if their workforce is representative of the community.
Partnership provides new abilities
“During the past 12 months, TechDiversity has developed a number of new resources to support their community and the Cultural Infusion partnership fits perfectly into this offering,” explains Luli Adeyemo, Director of Best Case Scenario, the agency behind TechDiversity.
“TechDiversity is once again excited to push boundaries through our partnership with Cultural Infusion, we can now offer our community of business leaders the ability to define and measure diversity. Their analytics tool, Diversity Atlas is exactly what our community of HR executives, business leaders and employees championing Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) need, to not only justify the positive impact of D&I on workforces but also the business successes it can reap.
“I have lost count of the number of business leaders asking me how to measure diversity, well my answer to them is Diversity Atlas – using data for evidence-based action.”
Both organisations share their vision of a future where; all people are valued, individuals are empowered, and organisations and communities thrive.
Cultural Infusion’s data-driven mapping platform Diversity Atlas acts as a catalyst for transformational change, providing a world-first definition and measurement of cultural diversity, along with the knowledge and insight necessary for inclusive strategies.
Working together to drive workforce benefits
TechDiversity will work with Cultural Infusion to deliver workforce benefits in the following areas:
- Educate: continue to support business leaders in understanding the business benefits of diversity and inclusion, how to measure and begin cultural transformation.

- Salute: we will share stories of D&I success ranging from workplace wellbeing to improvements in productivity and company growth.
Cultural Infusion clients can access TechDiversity’s educational resources and attend upcoming awards to meet with other organisations who are benefiting and celebrating from a D&I workforce.
