Diversity Statement & Policy

At The Grad Soc, our core mission is to create new opportunities for those who need them most.

We achieve this by encouraging our clients to embrace our innovative internship model, designed specifically to increase accessibility and remove barriers. Through remote and part-time contracts, along with straightforward application processes, we strive to open doors for a diverse array of talents.

Our Definition of Diversity includes a broad spectrum of human differences, such as race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability, religious or ethical values, national origin, and political beliefs. We believe that diversity is not just a metric to be achieved but a resource that enriches our entire organisational ecosystem.

The Importance of Diversity within The Grad Soc cannot be overstated. It drives our innovation, enhances our ability to serve our community, and is integral to fulfilling our mission. Diversity strengthens our team by bringing together varied perspectives, experiences, and talents, thus fostering a more creative and effective organisation.

Action and Accountability

We are committed to:

Recruitment and Retention Practices: Implementing processes that are easy to understand, with clear and simple application procedures aimed at dismantling traditional barriers to entry.

  • Providing ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusion training for all employees.
  • Promoting open dialogue and learning opportunities about diversity and inclusion.
  • Establishing and enforcing policies to address discrimination and harassment.

Continuous Learning and Adaptation: Recognizing the path to inclusion as a journey, we are dedicated to listening, learning, and adapting our diversity strategies to better serve our community and the world.

Encouragement of Involvement:  We invite everyone in The Grad Soc community to engage with our diversity and inclusion initiatives. Your participation is key to creating impactful change.

A Safe and Welcoming Environment: Our commitment to maintaining a workspace where all feel safe, respected, and valued is unwavering. Discrimination and harassment have no place at The Grad Soc.

Our Vision for the Future sees The Grad Soc as a beacon of diversity and inclusion, where our commitment is visibly lived out in our daily operations. We envision a future where every member of our community feels empowered to contribute their full potential to our collective success.

Success to Date

Proudly, over 93% of our past and present interns come from underrepresented backgrounds, lower socio-economic positions, and young women aspiring to enter the tech and digital sectors. This achievement is a direct result of our unique approach, which focuses on addressing the root causes of inequality rather than relying on positive discrimination or other short-term fixes. Together, we’re not just creating a more inclusive workplace; we’re building a more inclusive world.
