You’ll remember the Google engineer, who, in 2017, authored the now infamous memo on the differences between men and women in tech. Those views hold no truth but mere symptoms of substantials barriers to entry and social conditioning faced by women and minorities in pursuing careers in technology.
The ugly truth is that there is a diversity problem in our beloved sector. Not just on the other side of the pond and amongst the likes of Google, but here in the UK and in London – the most cosmopolitan of cities – and across agencyland.
At Fat Beehive, we have to do our bit to redress this imbalance and recognise the positive value of diversity, promote equality and challenge unfair discrimination. We aim at all times to recruit the person who is most suited to the job and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds – men and women, people of all ages, sexual orientations, nationalities, religions and beliefs.
However we particularly encourage applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are underrepresented throughout the technology industry.
Additionally, Fat Beehive is a Disability Confident employer. This means that we are committed to employing disabled people and will:
- actively look to attract and recruit disabled people
- provide a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process
- offer an interview to disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the job
- be flexible with assessing people so disabled applicants have the best opportunity to demonstrate that they can do the job
- make reasonable adjustments as required.
