At Missive, we understand that diversity and inclusion is not an end goal but an ongoing journey, requiring constant reflection and a steadfast commitment.
We support tech organisations to take a long term, strategic approach to DE&I across the entire organisation.
Missive works with organisations to take mindful and deliberate actions to improve the DE&I of their workplace culture and practices. We support tech firms to:
1. Implement equitable policies and practices
2. Attract a diverse workforce and customer base
3. Develop a culture of inclusivity
For some clients we support with external data benchmarking to track their efforts against legislative frameworks, market trends and customer expectations. For others, we partner on the journey right through to policy creation and training.
We host a free DE&I Clinic for organisations that are led by or support under-represented groups and communities.
Our Clinic helps organisations to promote progress, from knowing where to start and what to measure, through to game-changing tech that is focused on a more equitable, inclusive world.
We care deeply about helping to grow responsible practices and greater DE&I in the technology industry. Book a free appointment with our DE&I Clinic to seek advice on diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.Book a free consultation
