Diversity In the Public Sector

Black History Month 2022. Spoken Word by Zara Dieobi, Poet and Actress.

This excerpt from our Black History Month Event around Diversity in the Public sector needs little introduction. Hear from 15 year old Zara Dieobi who really set the tone for a day of wonderful conversation with her poem around injustice and inequality, and the difference we can all make. It’s hard to believe that a voice as powerful as this is only 15.

Our approach to diversity and inclusion is built to ensure best practice and innovation is developed and delivered throughout any candidate attraction and engagement process. This is rooted in rigorous data analysis and ongoing qualitative research to increase the volume and quality of underrepresented applications and subsequently hires. 

We support, guide and challenge clients to embed diversity and inclusion into their campaigns, and most importantly into the heart of their organisations. At Penna we embody the diversity you seek, and have a team of award-winning experts - our Diversity Consultancy. Through this team of experts, we go further than just looking at attraction campaigns, but consider the whole candidate journey and experience, through to hire, as well as once they join. Alongside them, our creative, communication and digital specialists are also experts in creation of attraction and engagement strategies which help organisations reach underrepresented audiences.
