Conversations of Colour


Alongside diversity and inclusion consulting Lives of Colour runs its own projects both locally and nationally, all focused on enabling individuals and communities to own their own narratives regardless of their Gender, Religion, Age, Disability, Ethnicity, Economic status, Sexual Orientation or Sexuality. This is implemented through articles, video stories and podcasts.
