Taylor Bennett set up the Taylor Bennett Foundation in 2008, by the Managing Director at the time, Professor Dame Heather McGregor.
Taylor Bennett are committed to equal opportunities at work. Their mandate is quite simply to find the best person for a job. They oppose discrimination on grounds of age, gender, sexuality, disability, religious belief, race or ethnicity.
In public relations and corporate communications, people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds are under-represented. One reason for this is that talented people from an ethnically diverse background are rarely encouraged to consider working in this field or provided with the skills and knowledge to do so.
All Taylor Bennett employees contribute time to the Foundation, including mentoring and discipline-specific training sessions, and are assessed on their contribution each year.
