Frost Included

Head of Impact

Frost Included Ltd, f(i), brings together global experts with deep knowledge in diversity and inclusion, and extensive experience in the worlds of academia, business and government. We have world-class capabilities in implementing programmes in the public, private and third sectors. We are passionate about benefitting the clients we work with.

What makes us different?

Diversity is a reality. Inclusion is a choice. We don’t waste time ‘selling’ diversity or helping organisations paper over the cracks. We focus relentlessly on building inclusive cultures through developing leadership and re-engineering systems and processes. We positively disrupt the Boardroom in corporations, academia, media and government. We achieve measurable change - greater representation (diversity) and more conscious decision-making (inclusion) to benefit individuals, organisations and the world at large.

We are a virtual team and all benefit by working from home. This offers flexibility, minimal travel costs and a chance to work your contracted hours around your lifestyle. We are in touch daily, meet regularly via Skype and hold quarterly retreats in person at fun locations.

We genuinely live our values:

Courage to be disruptive - Speak truth unto power

Restless and tenacious - Achieve the highest standards

Dare to be different - Be yourself, flex your role, have fun
