About Us

African Caribbean Diversity (ACD or ACDiversity) is an education charity founded in 1990. We focus on the academic attainment, career prospects, and social mobility of young black state school-educated students in London, aged 14 – 18, and are now developing programmes to support our alumni at university and at the early stages of their careers.

We provide a wide array of enrichment programmes for our students, from residential summer schools at the University of Cambridge for year 9s, to one-to-one mentoring relationships with working professionals, to black history education seminars. Over the last 10 years, we have had over 300 students come through our programme and have long-lasting sponsored relationships with the likes of The Bank of England, Goldman Sachs, Slaughter and May and the University of Cambridge.

“All I can say is ACD helped build my character. Being part of the scheme is like having a second family, where Brenda, the chief executive, is your mother and the students and mentors are your brothers and sisters. Your family’s job is to be your backbone, to help you and guide you through life. This is exactly what ACD is about.”

- Aminata Vandy, ACD Student 2009

“ACD granted me access to spaces that allowed me to cultivate life-changing relationships and
develop a progressive mindset, whether this was through: role-models in alumni, empowering Black
history seminars, internship opportunities, supportive mentors, ambitious peers, residential
development programmes at universities and at the EU, motivating GCSE and A-Level results
celebrations, or insightful corporate networking events. Success became normalised and my critical
and logical thinking skills were enhanced. The exposure and knowledge gained and relationships
nurtured provided me with tailored support in my academic and working career, as well as in my
personal ambitions and passions.”
