We recognise & actively address diversity & inclusion challenges both in the workplace & through our output. We also encourage our partners & clients to discuss & help resolve these challenges within our work.
We believe our work, teams, partners & the audiences we reach should reflect the diversity of the UK & our ambition is to achieve greater diversity in the areas of gender, race, disability, gender, sexuality, socio-economic background, faith & age.
We are aware that the only way we can move towards having a more diverse & inclusive team is if we recognise where our team, partners & art is lacking & work to correct this by placing diversity & inclusion at the heart of everything we do.
Our goal is to be truly inclusive by advocating & seeking active participation by all individuals regardless of their gender, ethnicity, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, heritage, education or religion.
To achieve our goal we will:
- Develop a workforce that is at least as diverse as the UK
- Work towards fair representation of all groups within our team & work, benchmarking ourselves against the diverse make-up of the UK population.
- Commit to supporting our partners & clients in this area.
- Make changes to our communications & physical environments to aim to make them accessible to as many groups of individuals as possible.
- Remain transparent about our progress & encourage our audience, clients & partners to further challenge us.
- Improve our representation of diversity challenges in our work, using our own platform to advocate change.
- Develop a culture where diversity is hard-wired into everything we do, is understood by all of us, & where we all have an opportunity to be a part of this ongoing conversation
Our policy will evolve & develop over time as the world around us changes, & as we learn more from our work on this.
We will next update our diversity & inclusion goals & policy in autumn 2020.
