Our Social Impact Team are contributors from right across our agency. They have developed a series of initiatives that utilise our expertise and sense of purpose within the wider community. We advise the industry on inclusivity and diversity and have achieved recognition through winning a prestigious Heart of the City Dragon Award.
Impact is a member of Heart of the City, who help us formulate and run our Social Impact work which forms a big part of who we are as a company. We have 2 main charity partners Inspire! and ReachOut. They are both Hackney based charities with strong links to schools which have a high number of diverse and disadvantaged pupils. We also have an official 3 year education partnership with Pimlico Academy. We have signed the Race Charter and are an accredited London Living Wage employer. Impact is ranked 6th in the GivX top 10 for the amount of charity work we undertake. And we were awarded the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Award for 2017 for our project ‘Future Proofing Talent Through Diversity’.
Diversity and Inclusivity in the media Industry
We have long recognised that our own and our clients businesses should better reflect the communities in which we operate – in terms of socio-economic disadvantage and BAME communities. We have made a huge commitment over the last 5 years and our project ‘Future Proofing Talent through Diversity’ is award winning. We passionately drive awareness of roles within the creative industries to a disadvantaged and diverse young demographic through our partnerships with charities, schools and leading community organisations.Enquire
Our community work aids in increasing the number of these young people applying for creative and media roles. As true advocates of change, we have spoken to many clients of the importance in attracting candidates from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds and we consult with many on these topics. We’ve spearheaded events, school workshops, internships and one of our Founders delivered a brilliant speech in Parliament!
