We believe there won't be inclusive and diverse creative work on screens and in the media UNTIL we have inclusive workplaces and diverse teams creating the content we consume. That's why we're here to help the creative industry unleash the power of all talents, working with agencies, companies, recruiters and the wider industry. Many organisations know their 'why', but not their 'how', and the how is the key.
We have a simple four-step process (assess, design, build, review) which helps map a practical plan, including how to implement measurement (because you can't manage what you don't measure). We work closely with your teams, bringing in our expert cohort of trainers who understand how to unlock work cultures and creativity. To assess where you're at, we deep-dive into three core areas and help you 'unblock' pipelines and progression paths for diverse talent. One of the key areas is recruitment, which is where we can work with your in-house teams, supply chain or those on the hiring front-line.
To begin, we delve into two views: first looking at your practices and policies, then working with people within your business to understand how these policies are shaping your culture. An example we see frequently is a company will have a progressive flexible working policy, but staff tell us they believe working flexibly will hinder their career progression and won't make use of the policy. With insight and data like this we can help you move your culture forwards.
We can also track your HR policies with those across the industry. How does your practices stand up against your talent competitors?
We look at your make-up around gender, BAME, age, LGBTQ, ability, education, social-mobility, neurodiversity and wellness, understanding who is 'present', but also how inclusive work cultures can help everyone thrive. Then we work out key 'levers' based on what we discover. We'll connect you with specialist groups to help bring in fresh talent into your business.

We believe equal representation starts on juries, on speaker panels and on awards shows. If you’re an industry body and you’re looking to establish an equal line up, we have a list of ferociously talented women and BAME judges who are more than willing to talk or judge on a huge variety of topics from creative technology to producing award-winning ideas. We also partner with various organisations to host events, like our popular ‘Masterclass’ series with BIMA.
We created the first ‘Shadow jury’ with BIMA to give six rising stars the opportunity to work alongside key jury members and understand the process.
