Diversity and Inclusion
With the desire for greater Diversity and Inclusion within organisations growing, our approach is constantly evolving to support our clients and communities.
Enlisting expert support
We know that diversity enriches any organisation, including our own. In 2020, we appointed Non- Executive board member, Lenna Cumberbatch, to help us embed an inclusive approach to everything we do.
Setting a clear D&I Strategy and Vision
We have taken time to assess our processes, policies and initiatives and ensured we have a strategy in place to support these. D&I is embedded at every stage of our career ladder and is truly at the heart of everything we do at GMASS consulting. When interviewing, we ask all potential joiners to explain why D&I is important to them, so from the off, we are clear in our messaging.
Communicating and ensuring continuous improvement
To achieve our aim of advancing inclusion, we created an internal D&I working group, with representatives from all areas of our business. With internal and external objectives, the group work together to create and implement our ideas.
Training all employees
G MASS employees receive D&I training which includes the following: Understanding the nine characteristics protected by the Equalities Act (2010) Identifying our unconscious bias (through participation in Harvard’s Project Implicit) Becoming consciously inclusive
Measuring our efforts and benchmarking
Internally we aim to ensure we are representative of the locations we operate in. Benchmarking against useful datasets, such as ONS, Scope, Stonewall and other specialist organisations, allows us to measure our progress.
