THE DIVERSITY  DASHBOARD

Progressive employers recognise that being forward-thinking on equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace makes sense.

They recognise that employees from different backgrounds bring unique knowledge, skills and experience to their businesses.

The Black History Month Diversity Dashboard is a place where we promote those organisations and companies who are actively seeking to recruit from minority groups; regardless of race, gender, ethnic origin, disability or sexual orientation.
