Employee groups

Championing inclusivity, always

Our people are the beating heart of our company. So when they want to put their minds together to do brilliant work that goes beyond their roles, we support them.

Our employee resource groups and networks create spaces for communities and allies to connect. Hundreds of our colleagues across the business are part of these networks, sharing experiences, finding support and celebrating awareness days with events and communications campaigns. All of our groups and networks were founded by our people. Think something’s missing? Come build it with us.
