WHY or what you need to know about Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion are important topics in today’s world. For workplaces, this can look like creating an environment that is welcoming and open for every person on their staff and to be appealing to a diversity of new talent.

You want your employees to feel appreciated, valued and safe in your company environment. However, there isn’t a quick and easy guidebook on how to be a Diverse and Inclusive company. We are all still learning and evolving. But, you can learn from one another and create safe, appreciated, and valued work atmospheres. Together.

And that’s exactly why  we created the Your Talent Agency’s Diversity and Inclusion Awards!
To put your company and others  in the spotlight. The companies that are pioneering and have embraced diversity & inclusion. It doesn’t have to be perfect to be celebrated.

Diversity & Inclusion is also high on the list of the current people looking for a new, exciting job. So, this award can really boost your profile in this overheated job market.

During the Award Show you can get to know your future tech employees, be proud of how you are doing and fill those open positions with new young and aspiring tech talent!

Diversity and Inclusion are important topics in the world right now. For workplaces, this can look like creating an environment that is welcoming an open for their staff and appealing to new talent.

You want your employees to feel safe in this environment, feel appreciated and valued.
Unfortunately, this is still not the case in every organization, and this is why we want to promote the companies that are creating a safe, appreciated and valued work atmosphere, to say; well done and lead by example.

Therefore, we created the Your Talent Agency’s Diversity and Inclusion Awards! To put your company in the spotlight, just because you’re doing #epic!

Judith Roetgering & Sacha Martina (Founders of Your Talent Agency)

We are convinced that having a diverse and inclusive talent pool fights the unconscious bias we see at too many companies, yes they are still out there...

Luckily the tables are turning, considering the current market, the problem of lacking talent whilst startups and scale-ups getting billions of funding to grow. With the younger and more open-minded management teams in these companies, having a skilled driven talent desire, opens doors for all kinds of talent. Creating a skilled driven opportunity that works both ways, for the company and the talent.

Being a scale-up ourselves we understand what it takes and with our team of 9 different nationalities and even more important, backgrounds, gender and personality we show that it works!

Rixt Herklots
(Managing Director at Una Collective)

You don’t need perfection to get started.

We live in interesting times. Finally, topics such as diversity, inclusion, belonging, unconscious bias, etc., found their way into not just the boardroom, but into company’s as a whole. The business case is made time and time again. But frankly, it’s not even about the business case. 

It’s about people. About the sensible thing to do.

When you have happy people (and I mean all people, not just your customers), you will benefit from it.

And the truth is there is no 10-step plan for successful diversity and inclusion just yet. However, that doesn’t mean we can celebrate the small wins along the way.

So, that’s exactly what we’re doing!
