Hi I’m Dr Donna de Haan

Otherwise known as The Diversity Doctor

I’m here to help you create Diverse, Inclusive, Value packed, Equitable business cultures. Because I know that a DIVE culture is the place where your team, employees, clients and customers will truly thrive.

I have almost 20 years experience as an academic, researcher, consultant and educator. I have a PhD and a MBA and I have lived and worked in several countries. I’m a mum to three young children, two boys and a girl and I’m a huge sports fan (I’m lucky to integrate this into a lot of my work).

I convert all this experience into easy to digest, value packed, actionable content that you can use today to create a business that will make all your employees, team members, clients and customers feel valued.

DIVE into these FREE resources and start creating a DIVE culture today

I know the best way for us to truly make a difference, is if we become intentionally inclusive in everything we do. If we only turn the spotlight of diversity and inclusion on certain areas of our lives, like work for example, we will fail to truly recognise our blindspots. By becoming intentionally inclusive in everything we do, we can start to truly breathe life into the topic. It becomes second nature, it becomes embedded in our DNA. If you’d like to become intentionally inclusive, join our Diversity Doctor Community. It’s free to join and your free to leave at anytime. Once you’re a member you will receive weekly bitesize diversity and inclusion content from me and once a month you will receive a new free resource. Simply click on THE DIVERSITY DOCTOR COMMUNITY link below and join today.

We all participate in numerous meetings every week. Did you know that meetings are full of rituals and routines many of which can make people feel excluded. If you would like your next meeting to not only be efficient and effective but also inclusive, simply click on the HOW TO CREATE AN INCLUSIVE MEETING link below and receive your FREE guide to creating inclusive meetings, following 10 simple, actionable and effective steps.

Do you feel like you want to start having meaningful conversations about diversity and inclusion but you’re not sure where to start? Are you afraid of saying the wrong thing and causing offence? Trust me you are not alone. The language surrounding diversity and inclusion is constantly evolving and it can feel a little overwhelming even trying to figure out where to start. So that’s why I have created these simple FREE guides to diversity and inclusion language. They’re the perfect place to start.

WORDS MATTER VOLUME 1 – is the perfect place to start as this introduces you to the general language associated with diversity and inclusion

WORDS MATTER VOLUME 2 – Guides you through the difference between sex and gender and explains what the acronym LGBTQI+ stands for.

So what are you waiting for?

Let’s DIVE in.
