About mwah. Making Work Absolutely Human 

Mwah. was launched in 2017 to change the people, culture, and leadership conversation, from ‘critiquing’ to ‘understanding, valuing, leveraging, and improving for individuals, organisations and customers’.  

Since then, Making Work Absolutely Human has become known for three distinct things:  

  1. Completing some of the most significant culture reviews across a wide variety of industries and sectors.  
  2. Co-authoring some of the most forward thinking and courageous Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Strategies in place across public, private and not-for-profit sectors. 
  3. Their deep research, game-changing diagnostics platform, and data-driven approach to understanding and improving Culture, DEIB, Leadership, and Belonging.   

65% of the work of mwah. is done for proactive organisations seeking to be better and in front of the curve; 20% is done as a result of public or internally challenging events; and 15% are in the analysis of mergers and acquisitions.
