DESIGN FOR DIVERSITY
I’m a London based Interior Stylist and Producer and would welcome submissions from people of Black, Asian and Ethnic Minorities who want to assist on shoots and gain experience of the industry. I would also like to discover and work with black photographers as well as learn new places where I might find props. I would be happy to receive portfolios, CV’s and press releases emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
By placing the Design For Diversity sticker on our website, we undertake to uphold the following:
We pledge that our channels – our websites, blogs and social media – will at all times endeavour to include people of every colour and gender and sexuality.
We pledge to seek out Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates to interview for roles that arise in our businesses. We will always hire the best person for the job, but we will endeavour to bring more diverse candidates through the process. We stop short of positive discrimination and we reject tokenism.
We pledge that any events we hold – be they panel discussions or talks, dinners, receptions, or media events – will endeavour to include people of all colours and genders.
The Design for Diversity pledge was started by journalist & writer, Kate Watson Smyth, founder of Mad About The House and Rukmini Patel, a British Indian Interior Designer. Here is Kate’s original blog post outlining the thought process behind the launch of Design For Diversity.
