It can be difficult to wrap your mind around how to improve diversity and inclusion. It’s a huge, multi-faceted issue, and one that needs real action from all sorts of industries – but it’s often hard to know where to start.

With our expertise, we knew we could help. After all, whether it’s our events organisers, our film production, our copywriting team, our social media strategists – everything we do is devised and delivered with a diverse society in mind.

That’s why we put together our specialist Diversity Solutions arm, now a leading light in our industry. As the only agency to offer this award-winning service internally, our in-depth understanding and practical solutions help clients across sectors to reach out to diverse entry-level audiences.

Below, you’ll find out a little of what we do, and you can visit the Diversity Solutions website to find out more.

Inter-firm events

 

Sometimes, promoting diversity in your industry needs to be a group effort. When major businesses come together at our inter-firm events, this united front helps create real and lasting change – not to mention a space where diverse students can easily get to know all kinds of employers.

Throughout the year, we run all manner of cross-industry events with household-name clients, whether it’s addressing disability in Law, or helping LGBTQ+ students into banking. We’re always branching out, so while you might like to get involved in our current events, your business could even help us pioneer something new in your industry.

Company-specific events

 

Client specific event

 

If there’s a particular diversity issue you want to tackle within your own business, we can also work with you to run a company-specific event. These standalone events are especially effective at helping you stand out, attract a specific audience, and perhaps most importantly, make real progress in supporting groups that are underrepresented.

Training and consulting

 

Diversity and inclusion aren’t just about hiring figures. We often find there are internal issues to tackle too, and our team are ready to consult on whatever you need – whether it’s unconscious bias training, improving your recruitment process, or reassessing how your marketing appeals to diverse audiences.
