Logo for the City of London Corporation

The City of London Corporation is a uniquely diverse organisation with three main aims – to support and promote the City as the world leader in international finance and business services; to provide high quality local services and policing for those working in, living in and visiting the Square Mile; and to provide valued services to London and the nation as a whole, including its role as one of the most significant arts sponsors in the UK and its support for the economic development of the surrounding boroughs. The City Corporation is older than Parliament and its experience and tradition underpin its modern role as the provider of key services. Elected Members, headed by the Lord Mayor, operate on a non-party political basis.

Passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), Men for Inclusion revolutionises workplace cultures. Men for Inclusion’s proven ADUCE model engages men, leaders, and culture carriers for tangible business benefits.

Going beyond diversity metrics, Men for Inclusion measures and works to close the lived experience gap to ensure true cultural transformation. The DEI experts have worked with executive leadership teams to help define DEI as a strategic change programme, positively impacting thousands of employees.

Established in 2021 by Mark Freed and Gary Ford, Men for Inclusion emerged from frustration with slow progress on inclusion across all industries. The mission: to empower men in majority groups to champion inclusion for social and economic benefits. We’re expediting enduring change by engaging more men in advocating for diversity and inclusion.

The Men for Inclusion founders have recently been invited to share their expert insights to audiences at events including:

  • UK Government Treasury Select Committee "Sexism in the City” hearing UN Women, Seoul Gender Equality Dialogue (South Korea)

And in publications and reports:

  • The Accidental Sexist (Rethink Press)
  • Lived Experiences research
