Diversity and Inclusivity in Business 

We Mean Business was our regional equality and diversity campaign to advocate, inspire and encourage inclusivity in business, both now and in the future. #WMBDorset.


We targeted female entrepreneurs in Dorset through this campaign.

In March 2022 we released a new grant for female entrepreneurs, made possible by funding secured funding from Natwest and match-funded by Dorset Growth Hub, to help them develop new business ideas. 

Over the summer of 2022, we delivered funded workshops for female entrepreneurs at the early stages of product development enabling them to benefit from peer support and specialist guidance from local product design agency, Aetha Design. 

About the campaign

We may have launched this campaign on International Women's Day 2022, but make no mistake, we're passionate about equality every day.
