As a committed advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), I, Vivian Acquah, devote my expertise to assisting organizations, HR managers, leaders, and DEI teams to create inclusive environments. My work encompasses a broad spectrum of activities that aim to foster inclusivity and equity within the workplace.
From crafting effective DEI strategy and action plans to overseeing the recruitment and onboarding of diverse talent, I strive to embed DEI principles into every facet of the organization's operations. I believe in fostering a culture of employee engagement where everyone feels valued, heard, and empowered to contribute their unique perspectives.
My work also involves supporting employees' career growth, ensuring everyone has equal professional development opportunities. I support organizations to measure the impact of their DEI programs, providing them with valuable insights into their progress and areas for improvement.
Equity and compliance are also central to my approach. I guide organizations to uphold fair practices and adhere to DEI regulations in the workplace. I facilitate courageous conversations, creating safe spaces where individuals can express their thoughts and feelings openly and respectfully.
I assist in developing or reactivating Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), empowering employees to support each other and promote DEI within the organization. I also provide guidance on authentic allyship, helping individuals understand how to support their colleagues from underrepresented groups actively.
To further enhance organizational DEI efforts, I focus on developing cultural agility and preparing teams to work effectively across diverse cultural contexts. I also assist in DEI role management, helping assign and manage DEI roles within the organization effectively.
Leadership buy-in and support are crucial for any DEI initiative's success. I work closely with leaders, securing their commitment and helping them understand and champion DEI's value. I support them in putting inclusive DEI action plans into practice, driving change from the top down.
My work also involves establishing strategic alliances and partnerships, connecting organizations with other entities that can support their DEI journey. Finally, I focus on DEI leadership development, helping leaders develop the skills and knowledge they need to lead inclusively and effectively.
My role is to guide organizations on their DEI journey, helping them create workplaces where everyone can thrive. Together, we can make diversity, equity, and inclusion a reality in every workplace.

Vivian is exactly the kind of person that our society needs to make positive change happen – open, honest, true to herself, engaged and engaging. She is true to the belief that open conversations are crucial but only actions can create real progress. If you are serious about making DEI happen at your organisation, I can only recommend that you work with Vivian.
Vivian has a vast knowledge about events and public presence, and what makes it wonderful is that she has a focus on humanizing interactions and communications, which in a year like this becomes not only useful but also necessary for any manager or leader. I can highly recommend Vivian to any company or professional who is looking to step up their game and become more empowered in their online (and offline!) presence.
Vivian delivered the "Amplifying Allyship"-workshop to students and it was a huge success! If you are thinking about the "why" and "how" to incorporate DEI in your corporate or educational structure, make sure to invite your leadership to a conversation with Vivian! She will clarify and support, from a place of knowledge, experience and patience!
Vivian is a force of nature and a natural entertainer! Her unique way to address the topic of DEI and well-being really surfaces how one cannot exist without the other! No one stays indifferent to Pump the Jam and we had a lovely time at @Google Amsterdam with her talk!
