Diversity and Inclusion at MUTU

Diversity and inclusion in our brand and community

Ensuring that all feel welcome in our global MUTU family is at the heart of everything we do. We are intentionally inclusive and diverse in all our content. We recognise that the health and wellness space lacks representation and diversity, and have been committed to actively addressing this.

Our programme content features women of colour and identity, as well as different body shapes and sizes so that more women feel represented and welcome in our space.

MUTU is for everyone who needs it. We welcome and support LGBTQ+ parents to feel safe within our community, and maintain a safe space where prejudice or discrimination based on any value, belief or choice are not tolerated.

Diversity and inclusion in our team

Team MUTU Culture is collaborative, respectful and empowering. Everyone is valued and takes responsibility and accountability for their role.

We are a female-owned and largely female-run company. We operate a genuinely flexible working and family-friendly working culture in order to accommodate the needs of parents, carers and people living with disability to ensure healthy work-life balance, happiness and mental health.

We are committed to creating an inclusive workplace that values and promotes diversity in physical ability, age, ethnicity, gender, identity or sexual orientation.

We do not currently have equal BIPOC representation in our team and addressing this is important to us. We are committed to improving representation, and proactively seek and work with BIPOC-owned and led businesses.

We are committed to learning and doing better. Within our team we have initiated ongoing discussion of the work laid out in Layla F. Saad’s ‘Me and White Supremacy’.

Our commitment and activism to anti-racism

At MUTU System we are anti-racist. This means we want to take sustained intentional action to combat racism. We actively support and promote BIPOC-led organisations and Influencers working for racial equality and in support of #BlackLivesMatter

Our activism is through donations and the representation and amplifying of black and brown voices.

We are listening and learning and are accountable for improvement and growth.

Our business is founded on the principle of women’s right to dignity and equality, and so our actions are focused on Black maternal health and on amplifying Black women’s voices.

We sponsor trainee Black Birthworkers and Doulas through Mars Lord’s Abuela Doulas Black Lives Abuela Scholarship Fund in the UK. Mars Lord is an Advisor to MUTU, and an Ambassador for our work.

We regularly and consistently share and promote Influencers and organisations working to combat maternal inequality and racism such as fiveXmore, 4Kira4moms and Black Mamas Matter.

We will continue to amplify Black voices, and to support all Black birthing people and mothers in our work.
