Everybody’s welcome

What does belonging at Reed actually look like? We caught up with co-members across the company to find out what inclusion and belonging means to them.

How we make sure everyone’s included

Celebrating race & religion

At Reed, we don’t just recognise different cultures. In order to truly champion inclusion in the workplace, we celebrate them. Whether it’s fasting with Muslim co-members during Ramadan, highlighting Afro-Caribbean icons during Black History Month, or learning about weddings during South Asian Heritage Month, we embrace all different cultures. We’ve also signed the Race at Work charter to help us improve how we support our ethnically diverse co-members.

Embracing LGBTQ+ identities

Everyone should have the freedom to be themselves at work, and at Reed we strive to create a safe, open, and inclusive environment for all our LGBTQ+ co-members. Through our initiatives, including regular lunch and learns, internal communications and our transitioning at work policy, we look to increase representation and education around LGBTQ+ identities.

Promoting gender equality

We take gender equality seriously. Whether it’s tackling the gender pay gap, mentoring women in leadership or making sure families have the support they need, we’re committed to creating and facilitating a gender-inclusive workplace, through a range of networking groups and knowledge-sharing activities.

Championing physical & mental wellbeing

We want all our co-members to feel supported in reaching their full potential. That’s why we’re committed to creating a disability-friendly workplace, which encourages conversations around physical and mental health. We’re also a Disability Confident Employer and Stonewall Diversity Champions.

Inclusive recruitment policies

We aim to ensure that our workplace reflects the communities we’re based in through fair and inclusive recruitment and selection processes. This includes creating job ads that appeal to all sections of society, only shortlisting people whose skills match the job requirements and only asking role-relevant questions during interviews.
