We get so much out of our membership with enei, including guidance and advice on equality, diversity and inclusion, with support through an unlimited range of webinars and events, access to comprehensive awareness and religious dates calendars, and downloadable resource guides. The monthly checks ins with our relationship manager, Rebecca, is always so beneficial not to mention how personable, resourceful and friendly she is. And her monthly update email is a winner – letting you know what’s going on, just at the click of button. This is our second year with enei and plan to subscribe for another year!

NCH&C has been a proud ENEI member since 2022, benefitting from special interest events and webinars, expert 1:1 consultations, and the unlimited educational resources. NCH&C is delighted to continue its membership with the independent organisation that helps to keep us accountable and encourages us to strive for more than the basic level of equality that legal frameworks outline. We want to challenge what an NHS organisation’s culture looks and feels like. We want to ensure that we are a healthcare organisation that our employees and patients want to belong to and ENEI supports us with this goal.
Mercy Kaggwa, Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust
I have been so impressed at the level of support and advice I’ve received since I started working with enei. My seconded role is brand new to the National Oceanography Centre – my main focus is on working with staff across the whole organisation to develop our organisational culture, and this includes Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. Although I’ve always been involved in DEI, I’ve never led it before, and have relied so much on my account manager, Rebecca Elia, for practical advice and reassurance. Rebecca has been terrific – she was new to enei as I started in my secondment – and I could not have wished for anyone better. She has been highly responsive, manages my expectations well and always lets me know if she needs to check something out with an enei consultant. In addition, the resources available on the website and the range of webinars have been incredibly useful for someone on such a steep learning curve!
Carolyn Myers, Cultural Cohesion Lead, National Oceanography Centre
I am happy to recommend enei as a trusted ED&I partner for our trust. Last year we achieved our first TiDE gold accreditation award, and are hoping to make this a second year, based on the continuing progress and work. Enei are accessible through fantastic account managers, in our case the wonderful Rebecca Elia. Without these elements the value that the trust achieves through this partnership would not be realised. With my experience through other organisations enei is head and shoulders above the rest and long may the trust benefit from the expertise offered and supplied. Thank you enei for being there when we need you.
Wasim Mir, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Advisor – Corporate Services, North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust
I have found the support and advice from enei invaluable. They take not only a global approach but consider all aspects of diversity and inclusion which is so important for taking a holistic approach. The advice from the team, the business network, and the wealth of resources have really contributed to the positive progress of our programme.

I contacted enei initially to organise EDI Train the Trainer training for a small group of people in our organisation. We looked at other providers of such training but decided to go ahead with enei because of the membership and its benefits. The training was fantastic—our trainer David was very good and equipped us with skills and knowledge we need to train people in the organisation. He was also so fun to work with. We have been making the most out of the membership since we joined— spreading the word about events and resources among our colleagues and completing the TIDE assessment. We really look forward to working with enei further and making the most of their expertise and networking with other organisations.
Joanna Sopylo-Firrisa, Organisational Development Lead, Make a Wish Foundation
We have found enei to be a useful improvement and benchmarking framework. It has helped us to measure our performance against others and is a good guide to making organisational improvements. The regular awareness and training sessions are something we’ve incorporated into our learning and education offer to staff to improve knowledge and understanding on a range of topics; they’re well organised, have a good range of speakers, and have been well received by staff.
Mark Johns, Engagement, Diversity, and Inclusion Manager, Northeast Ambulance Service
enei have been invaluable in supporting us with a wealth of enquiries as well as providing exceptional facilitators to raise awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion among our workforce. They respond to our questions at speed, always with insightful recommendations.
Lucy Sitton, Inclusion Manager, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Cambridgeshire Constabularies
It’s a really enjoyable experience working with enei. Their staff and consultants are so knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do, empowering their clients to create more inclusive products and processes. Thank you for your support so far in improving our courses and helping us work towards being a truly accessible training provider.
