Our diversity and inclusion promise

At Give a Grad a Go, we have been reviewing the way we work to ensure that we are inclusive in all areas of the company, including our internal processes, the messages we send out, and the content we share.

We’re committed to working towards these goals as a company to ensure equal opportunities for all.

Alongside this, we’ve been voluntarily gathering data from candidates in our database, who are helping us build a more precise picture of where we stand in terms of candidate diversity.

Take a look at our diversity and inclusion report and see how we stack up.

Diversity and inclusion company goals:

  1. We have plans in place for all new employees internally to receive diversity and inclusion training, covering unbiased CV screening. We have begun these conversations with training providers and aim to start rolling this out as soon as possible.
  2. Our internal operations team are starting to carry out a detailed examination on our current recruitment processes for internal recruitment, to analyse how we find employees and ensure our processes are unbiased in every aspect.
  3. Going forward, we are now sending all CVs blank to employers, with no name, helping to avoid unconscious bias and reduce discrimination at CV application stage.
  4. We have already started to educate the clients we work with on diversity and inclusion, and last year released a detailed blog and video guide on the benefits of diversity in the workplace for employers and how to overcome any challenges that might arise. We will continue to educate ourselves, learn more, and create more resources for both candidates and employers we work with, to help educate others as well as ourselves.
  5. Our charity committee are reviewing the charities we have supported in the past 12 months and finding gaps to ensure we are supporting a varied range of causes and organisations.
  6. Looking at the student societies we engage with and how we can diversify these.
  7. We will continue to regularly ask for feedback from clients, candidates, and employees through the surveys we send out. This will help us gain insight into the areas we can continue to work on internally to ensure all stakeholders are happy with our current processes.
  8. We will continue to review and strengthen our internal workplace mentoring programme, to ensure that all new hires are properly onboarded and feel included within our company culture.

We are always looking to partner with new, diverse businesses in the UK and worldwide. If you’re interested in having a chat, or if you have an idea of how we could work together, please get in touch.
