Tips for change

The formation of this charter is very much to encourage action, not just words

We ask companies and individuals to think about what needs changing and then set a simple, achievable, target or targets for positive change. These are differences in diversity and inclusion behaviours that they pledge to achieve over the next 12 months. At the end of the 12 months, they are invited to comment on how they feel they got on and then make another pledge for the following year. There is no judgement, just a desire to encourage all parties to try to make a difference.

While certainly not an exhaustive list, here are just a few ideas for change:


Schedule quarterly executive & board reviews of diversity and inclusion and set targets

Culture and religion

Pledge to understand the real working operations of religious practices and how these can accommodated by leadership members.


Remove all names/date of birth/country of birth before reviewing submitted CVs for your vacancies.


Introduce a zero-strike policy to all employees/clients who use any discriminatory behaviour.

Employee engagement

Introduce a communications officer to hold regular personalised 1 to 1 meetings with staff.

Pay gaps

Review all male & female salaries of roles against experience & performance to identify any discriminatory gaps.

Our values

Along with our members, we collectively promote an environment that allows for diversity and inclusion across the industry.

Not to discriminate based on race, colour, religion, marital status, age, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy, genetic information, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other status protected by law.

Following values to be taken under consideration during hiring processes:

  • An understanding of the impact of unconditional bias when reviewing CVs submissions and how to prevent
  • Merit-based employment
  • A fair, flexible & safe workplace
  • Equity across employees

Put measures in place to:

  • Prevent all forms of discrimination, whether conscious or unconscious.
  • Recognise the benefits a diverse workplace has not only internally for the business but externally across the industry/economy
