Michael Seeraj Classroom

Who We Are

We are an award-winning professional sports charity with extensive experience and a proven track record of successfully delivering tailored, leading edge EDI training, education, and support.

We have worked with a number of organisations from across the Sports, Public, Private and Charitable Sectors, including the EU, Home Office, FA, and the Institute of the Motor Industry.

Our Lead EDI Consultant, Dr Michael Seeraj, previously formed part of the influential EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) programme examining exclusion and discrimination across the EU Member States, and is a former Chair of both the London FA Inclusion Advisory Board, and the English Football League (EFL) EDI Leaders Forum.

He has also been recognised twice on the highly regarded Football Black List for his EDI work, alongside the likes of Bukayo Saka, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford, Lianne Sanderson, Patrick Vieira, and Vincent Kompany.

What We Do

The EDI landscape is evolving faster than ever before, and it is crucial that organisations develop the knowledge, skills, and understanding in this moving, fast-paced environment.

We work closely with organisations to develop the most appropriate training and support to meet their organisational needs and priorities. We can provide the EDI knowledge, skills and expertise that may not be available 'in-house'. This approach can prove the most efficient use of resources and cost effective.
