Diversity and inclusion

We all bring different backgrounds, strengths and perspectives to the team

We help every team member to thrive

One of our global values is: we all bring something different. So, being an inclusive and diverse workplace is hugely important to us, and makes us more relevant and valuable to our clients. We want to enable, encourage and support everyone to be themselves and thrive – whatever their age, disability, gender, gender identity, faith and belief, race, sexual orientation or social background.

We have several employee networks, all helping our people to be the best they can be. Each has board sponsorship and support, and guidance from our strategic diversity and inclusion partners. All of our networks are open to everyone.
