At Make it Clear, we are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace where all employees, clients, and stakeholders are valued, respected, and empowered. We believe that embracing diversity in all its forms enhances our creativity, drives innovation, and strengthens our ability to understand and serve our clients better. This policy outlines our commitment to promoting DEI principles within our agency and the broader design industry.
1. Diversity in the workplace
We embrace and celebrate diversity, recognizing that individual differences in perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, and cultures enrich our creative process and overall work environment. We strive to maintain a diverse workforce that reflects the wider society in the UK, promoting equality of opportunity for all.
We prohibit discrimination of any kind, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, and marital status. Our recruitment, hiring, promotion, and compensation processes are designed to be fair, transparent, and free from bias.
3. Inclusive culture
We foster an inclusive culture that encourages open communication, collaboration, and respect among all team members. We are committed to creating an environment where every individual’s voice is heard and differing viewpoints are valued.
4. Equal opportunities
We provide equal opportunities for all employees, ensuring that they have access to professional development, career advancement, and training programs that support their growth and aspirations.
5. Flexible work arrangements
We understand that work-life balance is essential for our team members’ well-being. We offer hybrid work arrangements, including remote work options to accommodate diverse personal needs.
6. Supplier diversity
We actively seek to work with diverse suppliers and vendors, supporting businesses owned by underrepresented communities and promoting supplier diversity.
7. Training and development
We provide regular DEI training and workshops to our employees to raise awareness of unconscious biases, microaggressions, and other barriers to inclusion. Our aim is to foster a more inclusive and empathetic work environment.
8. Community engagement
We engage with the local community through outreach programs and partnerships with organisations that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. We actively support initiatives that make a positive impact on underrepresented communities.
9. Evaluation and continuous improvement
We regularly assess our DEI efforts, seeking feedback from our employees, clients, and stakeholders. We use the findings to refine and improve our strategies and initiatives continually.
10. Design and content representation
We are committed to representing diverse perspectives in our design and creative content, avoiding stereotypes and promoting inclusive imagery and messaging in our work.
At Make it Clear, we believe that a diverse and inclusive workplace is not only the right thing to do but also fundamental to our success as a design agency. We are dedicated to fostering an environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and inspired to reach their full potential.
