ABOUT LIVING INSTITUTE

ABOUT LIVING INSTITUTE
LIVING INSTITUTE was founded in 2004 by Heidi Andersen as a small boutique consultancy. From day one it was our mission to improve our client’s ability to enhance diversity and inclusion in their organisation and profit from it.

In 2018 we added the analytical element, the Inclusion Surveys, measuring and monitoring the level of inclusion, belonging and psychological safety in the organization, we have grown exponentially.

WHAT WE DO
As a market leader LIVING INSTITUTE provides mapping, training, monitoring and counseling to a large number of companies with an ambitious diversity agenda and the goal to enhance diversity and inclusion on all levels in the organization.
We do so by enabling companies and the people in them to conduct business effectively by disseminating applied diversity intelligence.
We strongly support UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and we are especially occupied with SDG #5: Gender Equality

OUR MANTRA
Evidence-based knowledge made practically applicable – or in other words: Applied diversity intelligence. That means we have a strong focus on results, tools, new mindsets and achieving behavioural changes.

OUR CONSULTANTS

OUR HISTORY
LIVING INSTITUTE was founded in April 2004 as a provider of high quality solutions, training and workshops in general cultural awareness and country specific cross-cultural training.

In the early years LIVING INSTITUTE focused on cross-cultural training and the wellbeing of expatriate families during the transition process aiming to increase the retention rate, but over the recent years we have extended our services to enhancement of diversity intelligence, inclusion and of gender balance at all levels in the organization.

From being a company mainly focussing on personal issues related to international assignments LIVING INSTITUTE is now working in the field of enhancement of diversity intelligence, inclusion and creating gender balance in a broader sense.

In 2014 we introduced new solutions for companies with an ambition to create a gender balanced organisation. In 2016 we introduced the leadership program Inclusive Leadership – claim the future and in 2018 we introduced Inclusion Surveys measuring and monitoring the level of inclusion, belonging and psychological safety.
