Diversity by Design is the firm's arts-based action plan, which taps into the world of the arts (film, music, television, design and architecture) to help us build diverse, creative and collaborative teams.
Why the arts?
The arts enhance and enliven every aspect of our lives. They benefit us economically, socially, and educationally – from the future prospects of our children, to the vibrancy of our cities, to the contribution made to economic growth.
The arts also have the potential to nurture acceptance by bringing people together across borders, cultures and beliefs. From global television broadcasts which capture seminal moments in history, to the staging of local festivals, the arts promote greater cohesion and understanding among individuals and communities.
At the heart of Diversity by Design is the concept of tapping into the unique experiences and perspectives of artists, designers, commissioners, curators, media personalities, and other individuals from the worlds of art and design, and exploring how this can help us build a more diverse workforce and create high performing, creative and collaborative teams.
