Partnering with cultural, social and sports organisations, we put on programmes of training, work-shops and other events that promote unity and tolerance.
The Diversity Game raises awareness of our biases and challenges us to think differently. Delivered as a simple event activity or as part of our Unconscious Bias Workshop, the questions help participants understand and see how we all hold biases.
This game is used as a way of increasing participants' awareness, fighting stereotypes and challenging the way that people think. It can be delivered as a simple activity at an event or as part of our Unconscious Bias workshops.
Are you Biased? Take the Diversity Game Challenge to find out!
Communities treasure their culture. This activity provides the opportunity to exchange these treasures while educating about diversity, traditions and beliefs.
Taking the form of a one-off event where teams of participants spend a day like the TV show “The Apprentice”, participants are divided into teams, receive clues to specific locations, and instruct their drivers to take them correct locations in their communities. Teams are given multiple clues and locations and are filmed as they visit communities, learning as they go and broadening their knowledge of different cultures and ways of life. The winning team is the one who answers the most questions correctly and finds the treasure (prizes provided by Quilombo UK).
The Treasure Hunt encourages team building and raises awareness around biases.
Could you walk a day in someone else’s shoes?
Many people in our society are discriminated against because of particular characteristics such as religion, ethnicity, or gender.
Our community campaign and social experiment Changing for Change (C4C) produces short documentaries that highlight our society’s unconscious bias.
These documentaries raise awareness through social media and can be used as tools for discussion and debate in our training sessions.
Once people realise the stereotypes they hold, they can work to reduce or control their biases.
Our first C4C project documentary can be found here.

In today's society, diversity can hold the key to fostering new ways of thinking, belonging, engagement, and security.
Whether you are a business, a school, a public sector organisation, or just an interested member of the public, Quilombo UK can help you understand why diversity is important and what it is that can stop you from achieving it.
Quilombo UK have developed an interactive and bespoke set of services (training packages, one-off events & event tools) to raise awareness of unconscious bias and the strategies to overcome it.
Diversity is more than just a buzz-word
The Professional Development Programme (PDP) at Quilombo UK is designed to support university and higher education students, existing professionals changing their career paths, and experienced professionals new to the UK labour market into employment in their chosen careers.
By participating in the PDP, individuals can gain valuable experience and skills that can increase their long-term prospects and opportunities. Those who wish to take their engagement and experience further can also pursue team leader and assistant manager roles.
The PDP offers participants a full induction, role-specific manuals, training videos, regular team leader reviews, and periodic reviews with the CEO. Participants are given business-critical tasks and are held accountable for their delivery.
Participants can apply to undertake roles in a number of departments including:
Our participants through the departmental structure work to deliver all aspects of a project. Providing participants with a chance to provide community benefits at the same time as boosting their employability skills.
