Dawn is the owner, founder and CEO of Equal Approach. 10 years ago Dawn left a well-respected career within HR, where she worked for a number of international organisations, to pursue her passion for diversity and inclusion; as a result she created an inclusive recruitment agency to remove barriers for candidates with difference. Dawn has developed the business beyond that of an inclusive recruitment agency, into a specialist provider of diversity and inclusion solutions, which offers a range of services surrounding the diversity lifecycle. Dawn is a regular public speaker, trainer and contributor to thought leadership pieces on a range of topics surrounding inclusion. Her work has been formally recognised in a number of ways, including her recent inclusion in the inaugural Disability Power List – as one of the top 100 most influential people in UK. Marking Equal Approaches 10th year, featuring on this shortlist is a fitting tribute to the decade of work that Dawn has achieved with within the diversity and inclusion arena.
