About Us

We are a small but perfectly formed team – physically based in London, UK but with a global outlook.

Founded in the markets of Peckham, South London by Charlotte Butler in 2016 – we continue to draw our inspiration from the rich diversity that surrounds us. Diversity cannot exist without inclusion which is why our key focus is and always will be to help people talk through experiences of inclusion, or exclusion they have felt in the workplace. We cover all topics, LGBTQ+, Race & Ethnicity, Gender, Disability, Religion, Neurodiversity – and are particular experts in language and communication around these areas.

Whether you’re trying to engage leaders in their role as active allies or giving your entire organisation an opportunity to listen to each other, Altogether Different aims to break away from the traditional ‘D&I classroom’ format to encourage a more creative, engaged atmosphere. This empathy-building, inclusive approach is at the heart of everything we do. Empathy is the active ingredient when it comes to bringing about actual practical results for better workplace inclusion.

We’ve honed expert empathy-building techniques for workplace inclusion over the past six years, ultimately it increases belonging, it gets leaders bought in it works – and it’s why our clients love us!
