Inclusivity Pledge

The idea behind the Inclusivity Pledge was born out of discussions with clients and security operatives, both of whom told us of their frustrations with regards to behaviours and expectations around diversity, and the issues that needed to be addressed.

 

It’s really important that security operatives feel comfortable in the environment that they are working in – regardless of the gender, race, gender identity, age and culture of the client’s customers. It’s also a legal requirement to treat everyone with respect.

 

That’s where the Equality Act 2010 comes in. But we shouldn’t really need to go down the legal route when it comes to being open and welcoming to everyone you meet, and looking for the similarities rather than the differences between you and them.

 

That’s why we created the Inclusivity Pledge. It raises awareness around workplace diversity and addresses unconscious bias and discrimination. It supports effective communication and the use of appropriate language too.

 

At its heart, security operatives who are awarded with the Inclusivity Pledge badge signal to clients their understanding of and compliance with the Equality Act 2010, as well as exploring additional measures to stand up against discrimination in all its forms.

“Surely Inclusivity Pledge badge holders are taking an important step towards providing a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment.”

Raising Awareness
60% of people don’t like discussing diversity because they’re worried about saying the wrong thing.
Unconscious Biases
The first step in dealing with unconscious biases is to openly acknowledge and talk about them.
Effective Communication
Ask if you’re not sure what language to use - and if you make a mistake, apologise and learn.
