Inclusive Culture Pledge 2021

Anderson Quigley formalise their commitment to building an Inclusive Culture with the Inclusive Culture Pledge 2021

Anderson Quigley has joined leading companies from a range of sectors and industries in signing the Inclusive Culture Pledge in 2021, an initiative managed by diversity consultancy The EW Group.

As a business created to support clients and candidates in the education, not for profit and health sectors as well as wider public services, a deep belief in equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of our values. We see our role as seeking out talent in all its forms, whatever they might be, and identifying true potential. We take it as our duty to always be actively challenging assumptions about what outstanding talent looks like and we have an important role to play in promoting equality, diversity and inclusion.

Joining the Pledge is a public commitment that we take diversity and inclusion seriously and that we understand the need to provide our employees with a safe, fair and supportive place to work.  Throughout the year we will have the support of the EW Group, a specialist in diversity and inclusion training to receive specialist support in the following areas: bespoke training to deepen our individual and collective understanding of ED&I and participation in round table events to support our continued development and to highlight learning needs.

Our Pledge:

“In 2021 we will build an inclusive culture by committing to ongoing staff training to deepen our understanding of ED&I.  We will actively seek out diverse networks to ensure our pool of potential candidates has even greater diversity. We will commit to updating our own internal recruitment practices to ensure a diverse workforce for the benefit of our candidates, our clients and our team.”

The Inclusive Pledge is an initiative that supports our company values and we know that the learnings we will take from the events and training over the next year will continue to build our knowledge base ensuring we work at the cutting edge of diversity and inclusion.  We want to be accountable, to be part of the solution and to help effect change in our society.
