Embedding a new diversity and 
inclusion strategy at Bauer Media

Bauer Media has people at its heart, both those who work there, and the audiences they serve. They've been running initiatives around D&I for some time, but felt they needed to really accelerate progress around inclusion and their culture. We supported them to create and implement a refreshed inclusion strategy, including:

  • Running discovery sessions and developing a clear vision and strategy for their approach to D&I.

  • Working with our discovery partners great{with}talent to develop and roll out a staff survey, to understand the baseline for the company.

  • Designing and facilitating a launch event, to engage leadership to drive change in the organisation.

  • Reviewing survey results and making recommendations to continue to embed D&I.

  • Designing and running a full day event for 60 top leaders in the company, to help them understand more about inclusion, motivate them to take action and equip them to drive culture change.

  • Designing and running half day workshops for managers and activists across Bauer in the UK to empower them to take action to drive a more inclusive working culture.

  • Supporting Bauer in an end to end review of recruitment in the UK business, and recommending process changes. 

  • Designing a Best Practice Recruitment Guide for Bauer UK.

  • Designing and running training for hiring managers in Bauer business. 


Sarah Barnes (our People and Culture Director) and I have had incredible feedback on our leadership day.
