Founder Include Me, #Unmute & D-List
Mel founded Include Me in 2020, a mixed race, neurodivergent female, from a working class background, in response to the George Floyd murder and no longer willing to remain ‘on mute’.
#Unmute, the communication channel, was born and with a massive wave of support from a influencers and key stakeholders from industry, government, charities, academia, and business support, we began a journey of connecting with fully diverse individuals and communities inclusive in all regards.
Include Me now has over 1,100 active members representing entrepreneurs and connecting ‘communities of communities’, our membership grow significantly each week. In parallel, the D-List continues to grow and build, showcasing role models of all genders, race, backgrounds, abilities, and ethnicities. Our community platforms are open and free to use by individuals and organisations of all sizes wishing to reach talented but underrepresented
innovators. With a solid base in place, we now plan to amplify and scale through 2023.
