The People Development Team (PDT) has been operating since 1998. Originally a strategic, culture change consultancy, it’s work around the unconscious mind and the effects on data driven decisions encouraged a move into the field of unconscious bias with specific projects raising the question of why, with the best brains and serious investment in the field of diversity, progress was still painfully slow.

Coupled with this there was a tangible rise in the number of women being promoted into senior roles. The knowledge gained from this programme built the foundation for the work we undertake today.
