To kick off our Black History Month Event around Diversity in the Public Sector, our very own Dawar Hashmi opened up with a speech that took us from society and its changes since the turn of the millennium and since the murder of George Floyd, all the way through to the public sector and some astounding statistics about diversity within it - highlighting the path to change we’re on, but also showcasing just how much more we need to do.
As Dawar himself says during the keynote, “lets take time to listen”…
Our approach to diversity and inclusion is built to ensure best practice and innovation is developed and delivered throughout any candidate attraction and engagement process. This is rooted in rigorous data analysis and ongoing qualitative research to increase the volume and quality of underrepresented applications and subsequently hires.
We support, guide and challenge clients to embed diversity and inclusion into their campaigns, and most importantly into the heart of their organisations. At Penna we embody the diversity you seek, and have a team of award-winning experts - our Diversity Consultancy. Through this team of experts, we go further than just looking at attraction campaigns, but consider the whole candidate journey and experience, through to hire, as well as once they join. Alongside them, our creative, communication and digital specialists are also experts in creation of attraction and engagement strategies which help organisations reach underrepresented audiences.
