Founder & CEO
EDI Consultant & Music Education Specialist
Sam founded SLS 360 in 2021 after 20 years working in the Cultural Arts & Music Education sector. Her research explores the inequality and disparity which exists in the sector and highlighted a need to take action.
Having spent most of her working life as the only one or one of few leaders in this sector, driven by a desire for change, she now uses her voice, knowledge and expertise, together with a team of associates, to challenge and support organisations take action to affect meaningful change in the field of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
We are a values led organisation and strive to lead with our values and beliefs.
Integrity: we act with professionalism, transparency, and honesty. We are trusted partners.
Inclusion: we are committed to ensuring our work respects all individuals, diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences. No one is left out; all voices are heard.
Diversity: we believe it takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests, and backgrounds to make our society succeed. We lean into discomfort and celebrate and respect difference.
Innovation: we seek new solutions and think differently. We pioneer new ways of doing things and set high standards in everything we do; we are not afraid to try radical approaches.
Listening: we ensure our approach is rooted in listening and creating safe spaces for brave conversations. We listen to learn and create bespoke solutions for our clients

Through co-creation we work alongside individuals and organisations to continue to drive their EDI agenda from a place of mutual understanding and respect. Let’s Succeed Together
