Achieve success in STEM beyond the limitations of racial and social inequity


Welcome to Vanta STEM

Clive and Ali here...


We are long term friends, colleagues, mentors and business owners with over 20 years combined experience in industry. In that time, we have often been the only Black person in our teams/departments... sometimes even in the entire company! Yet, we have successfully navigated the daunting landscape of being a minority in the STEM corporate environment.


We attribute our success to good mentorship,

shared accountability,

and to the development of our communication skills which

have allowed us to build valuable and rewarding networks.


It took time to learn these skills


Along the way we made costly mistakes, discovered harsh truths and experienced setbacks; partly due to looking, sounding and thinking "different". We learned to see these differences as strengths, which we now use to our advantage.


We're now in the best position to transfer those skills to others
