Diversity Marketplace is a specialist consultancy that provides a ‘one stop shop’ for all your equality, diversity and inclusion requirements.
Specialising in employment we want to help you nurture and grow a healthy diversity strategy which takes your organisation through the employment cycle, whilst moving you from policy to practice. Why? Because it doesn’t matter how good your strategies and policies may look on paper, you’ll only see the real business and social benefits of embracing diversity once you put them into practice. All of our products and services are designed to move you towards achieving your vision.
We have a range of services designed to move you towards achieving your vision, including Diversity Online, Diversity Insight, Diversity Plus, Diversity Ambassadors, Diversity Audit, Diversity Training and Diversity Marketing – everything you need from a true diversity partner.
Launched in 2005, Diversity Marketplace is now firmly established as a leader in Diversity best practice and marketing communications. We specialise in supporting organisations to help fulfil – and surpass – their diversity objectives.
We have a research-driven approach to developing solutions for public, private and voluntary sector organisations. Specific experience includes conducting 25 extensive research projects on the perceptions of minority groups over the last five years, many internal audits and training programmes, the creation of a wide range of marketing campaigns to engage with minority groups, and designing the unique Diversity Online service . Each of our innovations provides testimony to the fact that we are best placed to address the recruitment and retention needs of today’s organisations.
Diversity Marketplace was founded by Gamiel Yafai. Gamiel has worked at the highest level with many public and private sector organisations on diversity related campaigns.
He has previously been Head of Diversity at the recruitment advertising agencies Euro RSCG Riley and Barkers Advertising. He has worked for several recruitment publications and is also a member of a number of Strategic Diversity Task Forces, which ensures we are constantly kept up to date with the latest information in relation to diversity. Gamiel is also an Ambassador of the Hunger Project
Gamiel spent 15 years in publishing before moving into the world of equality and diversity some 10 years ago. Over this period he has headed up the Diversity practices of both Euro RSCG Riley and Barkers (now Penna) focusing on recruitment and employment solutions on national, regional and local levels to help organisations move through diversity policy to practice.
Gamiel’s credentials are wide ranging, from developing an early relationship with the Commission for Racial Equality (Now the Equality and Human Rights commission to sitting on the Diversity Taskforce for NHS Scotland, where he was involved in helping to develop a diversity champions’ network across all Health Boards in Scotland. He worked with the Society of Personnel Officers for Local Government (now the PPMA) on the educational CD-ROM ‘The Race for Talent’ and the Department of Health’s ‘Positively Diverse’ equality unit to compile a good diversity practice reference guide that is used by the Department to promote good practice across the NHS in England. Using his wide range of experience and working with minority groups and stakeholders Gamiel has developed a number of Diversity tools to help organisations move from policy to practice in a way that capitalises on good practice and cost effectiveness.
As a qualified Teacher and NVQ Assessor, Gamiel also utilises his broad experience to promote the benefits of diversity and equality at seminars and conferences across the country and by designing and delivering bespoke training programmes to both public and private sector organisations. He has supported organisations through research and other means to identify routes to capture the attention of minority groups and has carried out training projects for audiences extending from senior managers and members of the Welsh Assembly to teachers. He has also had a number of articles on diversity published in the British Medical Journal.
