Diversity and inclusion

Workplace diversity and inclusion is much more than a buzzword. It’s your company’s commitment to raising awareness and supporting a diverse workforce.

These are the policies and strategies you need to attract, hire and keep hold of the people your organisation needs regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability and more.

All in Diversity and inclusion

How to identify unconscious gender bias in job adverts

With diversity and the gender-pay gap a key focus of many UK organisations, we have conducted extensive research into how the language of a job ad could impact on diversity.

Using previous academic research from The University of Waterloo and Duke University which outlined a series of male and female gender-coded words, we analysed 76,929 job adverts over a six week period to assess the frequency of gender-coded words in UK recruitment.
