2022 Shortlisted Nominee

Diverse Company Award


At NSPCC, everything they do is to protect children and prevent abuse. That’s why their commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is so important. Some of the EDI actions they’ve been embedding include introducing mandatory unconscious bias training for all staff; rolling out a webinar for managers on mental health and wellbeing in the workplace; anonymous sifting when recruiting; and conducted an organisational EDI survey to help make decisions on the focus of their next action plan. EDI has been built into their 2021-31 NSPCC Strategy in a meaningful way. In addition, the charity has extended Pay Gap reporting this year to cover other protected characteristics beyond gender (ethnicity, disability, and sexual orientation). Some of the same actions taken over the years to reduce the gender pay gap have also helped reduce or prevent pay gaps developing across other groups.
