About

MOKOM

MOKOM provides a specialist consultancy and advisory service, raising awareness around disability and accessibility in the workplace. We offer services ranging from presentations and workshops to expert consultancy. Through our work, MOKOM helps employers make a tangible impact on disability inclusion and accessibility in both recruitment and work.

Disabled people form the world’s largest minority group, yet are often forgotten in ‘diversity and inclusion’ conversations. 90% of corporations declare they have Diversity and Inclusion Policies in place, but disability is often left out of discussions.

MOKOM’s founder, Beth Kume-Holland, has worked with groups across government, the private sector and third sector to help create a more inclusive work culture. From easy-to-implement changes in your recruitment process through to awareness training and fuller accessibility audits, MOKOM can help you make your workplace the inclusive and accessible place you want it to be.

Beth and the team love to connect with new clients, from a one-off event through to an ongoing business relationship. To discuss how we can help,please email hello@mokom.co.uk.

Beth has professional experience in the disability space, working as Audience and Market Insights Lead at the UK’s main pan-disability charity, Scope. She has also worked for Citi, in the thought leadership team, writing about some of the biggest global challenges of the 21st Century and how businesses should be approaching them. Prior to this, she worked in academia as a predoctoral research fellow at Oxford University, specialising in civil rights and race relations and leading programs to improve access to university for those from less privileged backgrounds.

Most recently, she is founder and Director of Patchwork Hub, an accessible employment platform that connects employers to highly-skilled professionals who are seeking employment outside of the traditional 9-5 office job.
