Our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We had always thought our business was open and inclusive. Afterall, one of our values is “Everyone matters”. We hammer home the behaviour of treating everyone with respect, seeing things from the other person’s perspective, understanding that everyone has different values, responsibilities, concerns, families.

But when you delve a little deeper into Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, this value is a great place to start but it involves so much more.

Here at TrunkBBI, we naturally welcome difference. It’s what gives us strength as a business, the wide breadth of experience, capabilities, and perspectives. And any creative business knows that the best ideas don’t come from just one place. Diversity is important, but we feel what makes the real difference is inclusivity, or the act of helping people feel valued and enabled regardless of their differences.

We have really then only just begun our diversity and inclusivity journey. We started by ensuring everyone has mandatory training to help people understand what it means to be inclusive. We’ve set up a panel of people within the business to champion difference and we have ambassadors who are gaining their IPA D, E & I certifications. We continue to learn and evolve, and realise that this is not a quick win, or a ‘one and done’.

We are adapting our practices, offering home working, flexibility around start times, offer monthly life-balance days, offer access to mental health professionals, assess our working spaces to accommodate brilliant neurodivergent minds. And will continue to evolve to enable the difference around us.
