Liz Mayers is the B2E Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Improvement Principal. She has extensive EDI experience gained from 25 years Consulting and Executive Search experience, and is the co-founder of specialist EDI consultancy business, ARE Consultants. She is passionate about Equality and the ethical treatment of people. Believing it is essential that organisations embrace and celebrate diverse talent and create a positive and inclusive culture for that talent to thrive, and by doing so enhance their business performance and growth.
Liz started her recruitment career with Reed Accountancy in the 1990s, which had a well-deserved reputation for the quality of its Equal Opportunities training at the time. This gave her a thorough understanding of the legal obligations for companies and first-hand experience of the (often very different) reality which existed in client organisations. Throughout her career, she has been a strong champion and advocate for EDI initiatives, particularly whilst in Executive Search when often tasked with addressing underrepresentation in Leadership teams. She became fascinated by the impact inclusivity, and the ability to be your authentic self, had on the successful outcomes of these appointments and founded ARE Consultants to improve EDI for organisations.
