Arming the creative, media and tech industries with tools and insights to move us into a more inclusive, more innovative era.

The State of Play

The tech, media and creative industries are notoriously homogenous. They lack diversity of gender, colour, class, sexuality, ability and perspective – especially at the top. This isn’t just an ethical problem, it’s also a threat to the progress we make as a generation. Because without diversity of perspective, ideas are limited and innovation just isn’t possible.

Why the lack of diversity?

Being a minority brings about a set of issues that many aren’t equipped to deal with – unconscious bias, marginalisation, and prejudice in the workplace. Which leads great talent to opt out of the industry prematurely.
