Diversity and Belonging
The workplace is for everyone.
The more voices we have represented and amplified in Egress, the more we will all thrive, contribute and succeed. No matter who we are, we all have a role to play in creating equity. We recognise that a standardised approach does not create a fair system to support different groups.
Culture Club is here to educate our workplace community, foster an inclusive culture and to empower people by respecting and celebrating what makes them different.
Culture Club: by our people for our people
Here's what some members of our diversity group, Culture Club, have to say
A safe space, where we can arrange events for cultural/international days, get insight into different beliefs, and uplift one another!
Important to understand and celebrate various cultures, festivals, and events across the workforce. Good vibes that attract and retain employees
As someone with experience of sexism and homophobia, I know providing a safe, welcoming workplace is the most important thing we can do

In common with many technically biased organisations, we recognise that women are underrepresented in our workforce, but we have taken great strides to address this imbalance. Female representation in our workplace has grown from 20% three years ago to over 30% today, and we aim to continue increasing this figure year on year.Ranked as one of the UK's Best Workplaces for Women in 2021
We also seek a workforce that represents the communities it is drawn from, and we constantly seek a diverse population of candidates to fill our open positions at all levels, and across all disciplines. The representation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic employees in our workforce has been consistently above the national average for many years.
