We are BUD Leaders.

We want more Black & Global Majority women represented and visible in leadership positions in the UK and wider society.

We use the phrase Global Majority because people of colour represent over 80% of the world’s population. We want our voices and ideas to be heard, our ventures to be funded, and our success to lift others up with us.

Challenge X2 CampaignSupplier Springboard

We are seeking to rectify the power imbalance evident in leadership across organisations in the UK.  

Our approach is two-pronged: we work with Black & Global Majority-owned organisations to help them to address the systemic barriers to progression they are facing, and with large corporations, trusts, and government bodies to increase diversity in their teams and throughout their businesses by offering facilitation, training, and consultancy services.

Our work fosters collaboration, empathy, and knowledge-sharing. Together, we move towards equity and this benefits everyone.

We invite you to join us, and build a fairer business world, together.

I want to grow my Global Majority women-owned organisation.

I want to increase equity and diversity in my large organisation.

Why BUD Leaders?

We aren’t just another consultancy, we are BUD, and we do things the BUD way!

We are a social enterprise with flair, creating safe fun processes when dealing with difficult topics, in order to create change. If you are looking for death by PowerPoint, look the other way!

Tangible outcomes

We believe in delivering results that matter. Our workshops are designed to leave you with actionable insights and concrete steps that help you tackle your challenges head-on. We ensure that you walk away with practical outcomes that drive real change.

Lasting legacy

If you’re looking for quick, checkbox-style training sessions, we’re not the right organisation for you. We are focused on creating programmes and experiences that create real change, change that lasts. The kind that makes you say, “what has happened here, will not only affect me, but many others in a positive way”.

Fun experiences

We’re here to change the narrative about training and workshops. Did you know that those that laugh during learning are able to concentrate more intensely, improve their memory and learn at a faster rate?. We create fun, creative and interactive experiences where everyone gets involved!
