In this new hybrid and post pandemic world, we know that individuals and organisations are undergoing extraordinary change. We also know that women have been most adversely affected by the pandemic. These changes can create low morale and lack of productivity among all employees. A key element of transformational change is the ability to create a motivated, diverse and inclusive workforce as the new normal. This is our contribution.
We help organisations create a diverse and innovative business using a unique inside-out life, work and world approach with a specific expertise on the advancement of women. We support you in creating empowering, lasting change within the individual employee, team, department and organization.
Dr. Sam Collins, Founder of Aspire for Equality, recognised by her Majesty, The Queen as one of “The Top 200 Women to Impact Business and Industry” and “A Woman Shaping the World” by CNN is an international speaker, coach and best selling author and has been featured on the BBC, CNN, The Times and many more.
Dr Collins designs her work integrating the specific research, needs and aspirations of women. It is not purely a generic training agenda and she is known for her bold, humourous and interactive style. She is particularly known for her speaking and events via Zoom and other online platforms.
"The Aspire webinars proved to be a great success for our attendees. We are a global organisation so it enabled female participants from all over the globe to attend the event live or to experience the same development opportunity with easy access via the web remotely at a later time. We’ve received great feedback. Would I recommend Aspire for Equality? Absolutely!”

“Dr Collins & Aspire have helped us develop a training programme called Values Based Leadership, the results of which have been simply quite stunning. Over 300 women managers and partners have attended the course and the feedback has been incredibly positive. Reports of increased self-confidence, clearer vision in terms of building and progressing careers means a greater chance that these people will stay with us. That is very positive for them as individuals as for us as a business. A win: win.”

“It’s been a pleasure to watch the fantastic impact your work has had on our group of women and men, to watch people respond to and develop from what they have learnt from you and to see so many of them grow as a result of being part of your sessions. What you do is powerful, how you make people feel is hugely positive and I too have learnt a lot, grown in confidence, altered my mindset and picked up some bright ideas along the way.”

"I am head of diversity and inclusion at one of the largest international law firms in the world. Dr Sam Collins recently presented to a group of our women partners on the issue of role models and their importance in the workplace. The presentation went down extremely well with the audience, who are a highly discerning and highly critical bunch. Sam has a gift for capturing the essence of a topic and explaining it in a lively and engaging way, without ever appearing to lecture."
