Building an inclusive culture
Our Inclusion and Diversity program is run through a global I&D steering committee. There are now 38 committees around the globe. Each I&D steering committee develops and delivers against an I&D plan specific to the needs of their region. The steering committees have spearheaded initiatives such as the creation of an LGBT+ network, delivery of unconscious bias training, and the development of flexible working policies.
Employee Resource Groups
Open to everyone, our Employee Resource Groups are active networks of like-minded employees who share knowledge and insights on issues that matter. Through regular events and communication, they support our goal of creating an inclusive culture for all.
- Pride: Our LGBTQ+ community
- Colorful @ Kantar: Our community for black, Asian and minority ethnic employees
- No Limits: Our community for age inclusiveness
- Working parents and carers group: Our community for parents and carers at Kantar
Kantar Women in Technology
Kantar Women in Technology is an employee-led initiative, aiming to make Kantar a great place for women to work in technology roles while building a sustainable competitive advantage for the business. At Kantar, we believe that more diverse teams create greater innovation, bringing more diverse approaches, question and ideas.
The group's mission is to empower women in technology roles to foster mentorships, grow their careers and to showcase a supportive global community in which women can be inspired and encourage each other to realize their passion. We are committed to providing a platform to celebrate the contribution of women while attracting women to join our team and become role models for the next generation of technology talent.
