Diversity and Inclusion Charter

At IMPOWER we are committed to ensuring that our culture prioritises diversity and inclusion; this is the right thing to do. Read our charter to find out more about our commitments.

As a company:

  • We are committed to ensuring that our culture prioritises diversity and inclusion; this is the right thing to do. Greater diversity will also ensure our client work is more creative, more insightful and of higher quality
  • We have adopted a learning mindset, with an ongoing commitment to improving our understanding of colleagues, clients and the communities we work with
  • We recognise that diversity and inclusion approaches must be sensitive to the weight they may inadvertently place on minority groups – it must never feel like we are putting responsibility on particular individuals
  • We are committed to creating an environment that enables employees to bring their whole selves to work and allows them to be vulnerable, recognising the strength in that
  • We recognise that we have a long journey ahead of us, during which we need to remain authentic and realistic – but also ambitious

As employees:

  • We are against discrimination in any form and will always speak out when something isn’t right
  • We will celebrate and appreciate our differences, but also recognise our privileges
  • Senior leaders will model a ‘speak up’ culture to ensure people know they will be listened to

Challenging local authorities to promote LGBT fostering

LGBT History Month is an ideal time to reflect on a number of issues that still disproportionately affect people in the LGBT community. One area very worthy of attention is fostering.
