Hayley Barnard

Mix Diversity Developers

Hayley Barnard is the Managing Partner and Lead Strategist at MIX Diversity Developers. An expert on the topic of Unconscious Bias in the workplace and Diversity & Inclusion (D&I), she is a trusted advisor to a number of FTSE100 and Fortune 500 companies. She is passionate about inspiring business leaders to be more inclusive and to adopt the principle that diversity isn’t about difference, it’s about business excellence and commercial success. Frustrated by the tendency of unconscious bias talk to create guilt and inaction in the listener, Hayley has found a way to use humor and anecdotes to help us all see the potential that bias has to create blind spots in our thinking and what we can do about those blind spots. Hayley’s strength lies in bringing the subject matter to life whilst also making it achievable and practical. She is the most prolific keynote speaker on the topic across Europe, elevating inclusion and unconscious bias to the main stage at company-wide conferences and senior leadership team meetings. Clients include Capital One, Diageo, Skanska, Bloomberg, Lloyds, Intralinks, Milliman and T-Mobile. www.hayleybarnard.com.
