Time for open conversations and change

The world is on a journey of education and change. It's time for us to not only open up conversations about change within society, but its paramount that we all begin to action change within the walls of our own workplaces.

Gravitas is committed to taking company action and ensuring that we are dedicated to not only creating an environment that encourages the celebration of different cultures, ethnicities, genders, sexualities, ages, religions, and abilities but also a workplace that our own ‘Gravitonian's’ can be proud to be part of.

We want to create a truly inclusive and diverse environment, to expose everyone in Gravitas to as much education and awareness on the topic of DEI, as possible. We also want to ensure that this aim is reflective within our day-to-day work with our candidates and clients.

In this video a selection of Gravitas clients, talk about why diversity matters for business.

Thank you to Anna Moses from Cervest, Kameka McLean from Solidity HR Consultancy and Sophie Theen from Oakam Ltd for sharing some really interesting takeaways.

Our DEI offerings

Background image

We hold our leaders accountable for implementing our organisations DEI vision, by setting standards, driving initiatives, and being role models. We do this by ensuring our leaders are trained and feel knowledgeable enough to have conversations about DEI with our employees, candidates, and clients. We are committed to advancing an inclusive culture and creating a better, equitable working world for everyone.

Our DEI vision statement is “To be recognised by our clients, candidates, and staff as a leader within Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion through positive action in reducing bias. Our aim is to make a difference to the working world by supporting our clients, providing clear advice on DEI recruitment processes, and encouraging allyship across all our networks.”

Our ongoing DEI mission is to ensure that DEI principles are integrated into all areas of our attraction, sourcing, and recruitment processes, as well as talent performance/management, advancement, and retention strategies. We conduct competency-based interviews to assess candidates based on qualities such as hard work, motivation, competitiveness, and resilience. Our job descriptions have been reviewed and amended to eliminate gender bias using tools like the Gender Decoder website.  During the internal interview process, we educate potential employees and candidates on the importance of DEI. Our Workshop and Interview Days (i.e. assessment centres) also include a section on DEI and its importance internally and externally. 

Gravitas DEI committee

The Gravitas Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee is a diverse set of people, passionate about this topic.

The aim of this committee is to improve DEI within Gravitas through positive action and reducing bias.

Also to act on our crucial role in promoting diversity as a recruiter by supporting our clients and providing clear advice on a diverse recruitment process and encourage allyship across all our networks.

I want to be part of the change that is happening around us. Being part of TA allows me to really show my passion for people and being part of the LGBTQ+ community has meant I want to ensure everyone can be recognised for their potential contribution.

Ryan Sullivan,
DEI Committee, Gravitas
