We’ve continued to make progress towards our EDI agenda and action plan. Through a wide range of initiatives, campaigns and the growth of our EDI networks, we’ve seen increased levels of engagement from colleagues and strengthened commitment to our agenda by the Senior Management Team - in terms of their investment, leadership and engagement. Our Senior Management Team members each support one of the eight EDI networks - providing additional support, an understanding of the challenges discussed and support for the groups with progressing actions.
Here are just some of our recent achievements:
“At the Growth Company (GC) we want everyone to feel that they belong and we are committed to creating an environment where all individuals are valued and treated with respect. The fundamental principles of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are core to our values and ways of working. At GC we have an EDI Steering Committee which comprises of members of our workforce who are passionate about EDI and help drive forward our EDI objectives. The EDI Steering Committee is sponsored by GC's Board Member, Vanda Murray OBE and our Executive Director of Corporate Affairs and Marketing, Carla Nuttall who support and empower our work to drive change needed to achieve inclusivity. I fully endorse the work of the EDI Steering Committee and EDI Network Groups and believe it’s an essential part of what makes GC a great place to work. We are dedicated to ensuring that colleagues have a voice and we want to create a culture of continuous learning through the learning platform.”
