At eduMe, we believe diversity drives innovation. We’re aspiring to build a culture where difference is valued and a place where everyone, regardless of race, culture, socio-economic background, gender, or sexual orientation feels safe, welcome, and can be their best working self. We want EduMe to be a place where individuals can share their unique perspectives, leverage their strengths, and be themselves.
We are currently a team of around 60. Our team includes 15 different nationalities, 21% of whom are people of colour and 41% are female.
We aim to be transparent in our efforts to become a more diverse and inclusive place to work. All feedback and ideas are greatly appreciated and can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This plan has been inspired by Project Include, a resource that we've found extremely useful.
How are we going to do this?
- Take a long term, proactive approach while getting consistent feedback from the EduMe team
- Understand our societal duty to influence change and play our part in creating a fairer world
- Understand we might, at times, get things wrong but do everything in our power to learn from mistakes
- Take an intersectional approach; we understand that there isn't a "one size fits all" approach to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the minority groups within this
