Unity Multicultural Network

Our Unity Multicultural Network aims to create an environment where everyone is afforded the same right of being able to be their Distinctive Authentic Selves. We are proud to have the support of our Executive sponsor Kate Banks, Chief People Officer, who plays a key role in helping us deliver our aims.

We aim to create a support system for members of the BAME community and our allies where we can meet and discuss a range of topics around inclusion, uncover issues and collectively find solutions to barriers in the workplace. Ultimately, we wish to improve representation within the business and help make DAS UK an attractive place to work for members of the BAME community.

Additionally, we are bringing awareness to the business around obstacles people of BAME backgrounds may face in the workplace such as unconscious bias. We also want to share our religious and cultural experiences to improve awareness of the diversity that exists within the company.

We will continue to help educate those around the business on issues around race through a range of activities including webinars; and plan to offer members of the network the opportunity to mentor young people from the BAME community in Bristol.

Race at Work Charter– led by Unity, our multicultural network

Business in the Community’s (BITC), race equality campaign supports employers to ensure that ethnic minority employees are represented at all levels.

The Race at Work Charter comprises five calls to action for leaders and organisations across all sectors. Signing up to the charter demonstrates an organisation is taking practical steps to ensure workplaces are tackling barriers members of the BAME community face in recruitment and progression.

We have signed the Race @ Work Charter to ensure DAS UK embeds the optimal culture, policies and procedures to allow employees of all races to fulfil their potential. Through analysing the right data and understanding where our challenges lay, we can design effective interventions to tackle any issues. We’ll be focussing on support for those who want to develop in their current role and those who want to progress into more senior positions at DAS. We want to improve representation and create a workforce that reflects the society we serve.

Inclusion at DAS

We know that simply having a diverse workforce is not enough. We want to create an inclusive environment where everyone can contribute their best work and reach their full potential.
