We could tell you all the reasons why we think you should commit, but let’s hear from your fellow firms, who explain why are they involved in the Diversity Agenda.
It’s helped us with our value proposition – internally and externally.
Because people want to work for a company that satisfies their desires in terms of social responsibility and the values that align with them personally. And when people are deciding whether to join, stay, or if they’re aligned with a company, our Accord commitment shows what’s important to us.

It was a no-brainer.
We were already down the path in terms of diversity and inclusion as we’d started up our diversity group within Harrison Grierson, so we saw it as the next step for an industry-wide perspective.
We’re on our journey at Harrison Grierson and we see the importance of making sure that our whole industry is taken along. At the end of the day Harrison Grierson has a purpose of shaping the world into a better place. We’re doing that one step at a time with our own business but for me, the Diversity Agenda is the next step in terms of shaping the whole industry into a better place.
We’re now actually being held to account on something.
I could see being part of a broader industry conversation meant we could have the opportunity to learn from what others were doing, compare notes, and we would be able to share some of our experiences at the front line with this stuff. When the Accord came a couple of years after that, it felt really good to be a part of it. Because it wasn’t just clicking to subscribe – we’re now actually being held to account on something.
I’m passionate about making a difference.
I see being a Diversity Accord signatory as a great opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from other leaders about how to create a truly diverse workplace.
