Our vision.

To create a world where everyone’s voice is heard and their stories are told in a fair and authentic way.

Our mission.

To equip organisations with the tools they need to ensure equitable representation across their external communications, so everyone can contribute to the conversations and decisions that influence their lives.

Emily’s story.

Founded by journalist and public relations expert Emily Horton in 2021, More Diverse Voices helps companies and communities connect with their audience through inclusive communications.

Over the past 6 years, Emily has helped charities, think tanks, policymakers, investors, and fast-growth tech companies find their voice. She has helped craft thought leadership pieces, reports, press releases, social media campaigns and pitched stories to the press. 

During her time as a financial journalist at Dow Jones Emily focused her reporting efforts on diversity and inclusion. She profiled female financial leaders, wrote articles about Pride in the City of London, mental health and stress in the workplace, sexual harassment cases and the lack of Black asset managers. Alongside this, she oversaw her paper’s journalism access scheme in partnership with Speakers for Schools.

Emily came up with the idea for More Diverse Voices while taking part in the post-graduate social innovation programme Year Here. During the course, she recognised that many organisations struggled to involve the communities they work with in what they say; not because they don’t want to but because they don’t know how.

Emily has a degree in Archaeology and Anthropology from Cambridge University and graduated from the Quantic School of Business and Technology’s MBA programme in 2019.

How we define diversity and inclusion.

We believe that everyone’s voice deserves to be heard, so that everyone can contribute to the conversations and decisions that influence their lives. Alongside equitable business practices and policy, we believe this approach needs to be embedded across all external communications and across the media to help create a fair, diverse and more inclusive world. Being excluded from the conversation can take form in several different ways. At its core, we define the intersecting pillars of diversity and inclusion as race, gender, LGBTQ+, disabled people, neurological diverse people, socioeconomic background, caregivers, age, religion, mental health and allys.
