Matt Parsons

Founder | Radius Networks

As the founder of Radius Networks, Matt helps the world’s biggest brands to empower their employee networks to drive diversity, equity and inclusion.

An award-winning entrepreneur, Matt founded Radius in 2011 after working in the events industry. As a LGBT+ man dealing with the challenges of ADHD and dyslexia, Matt found a sense of belonging when he joined and later founded his own employee network. The experience was life-changing.

Seeing first-hand the power of employee networks to ignite change, Matt set up Radius, the first and only organisation dedicated to supporting network leaders and turning their passion into action.

Leading the industry for 14 years, Radius now works with more than 850 organisations across 125+ countries, including household names such as Meta, Warner Brothers, BBC, Bank of America, Coca Cola, Disney, Meta, IBM plus HM Government and the United Nations.

Radius supports employee networks across all different types of diversity, helping businesses to drive a bottom-up revolution. By developing network leaders, Radius helps employers to build better, stronger networks that support communities’ wellbeing and create a place where everyone belongs.

A National Diversity Awards winner, Matt provides strategic support to many EDI businesses and has served on the volunteer board of Diversity Role Models and other charities. 

Today Matt is passionate about promoting human growth through cross cultural understanding and helping businesses connect globally across perceived divides. As more of us join the global, digital workspace, this work feels more important than ever.
