There are a variety of organisations that are available to help companies make their recruitment practices more inclusive. This is a selection of what is available, which has come from the work that the action group did.

The Academy does not endorse any of these organisations and each company needs to ascertain whether what the organisation is offering is of value to them. Some of the resources are free, others require a membership fee or a cost per service.
