Diversity and Inclusion Statement.
The increased awareness around anti-black racism and Black Lives Matter throughout the Spring and Summer of 2020 made us think about our own diversity, equity and inclusion. We wanted to educate ourselves and continually take actions to ensure we are facilitating a diverse and inclusive work environment.
Basis’s mission is to help public services tackle messy problems. To achieve this, we need to understand and be inclusive of the unique experiences, perspectives and viewpoints within our own workforce, and also of the diverse groups of people, teams, and communities we work with.
We know that embracing varied perspectives helps generate great ideas to better solve the complex problems of a changing world.
Our ultimate goal is to make Diversity and inclusion intrinsic to our way of working. But we know that this can’t happen without action. Inclusion is not just about having diversity and acknowledging it, it’s about using empathy and other people’s perspectives to view problems through their lens. Genuine inclusion will see the way that we operate and practice shift as we’re able to incorporate and include a variety of different views into the work that we do.
This is what we’re doing about it
