Supporting underrepresented groups in accessing Creative Industries

Industry Partner with UAL
University of the Arts London

I'm a proud to partner with UAL & all their colleges. I work with UAL's Creative Shift, part of Careers and Employability, to support underrepresented groups access to Creative Industries. I provide leadership and soft skills workshops to help graduates and undergraduates flourish in the world of work.

Mission

By 2025, 75% of the global workforce will be made up of millenials.

The 2021 Deloitte Millennial Survey shows that 34% of millenials and 38% of Gen Zs believe racism in the workplace is systemic.

Because discrimination can become embedded in organisations over time, 3 in 5 respondents agree that positive change will come from the top down - from a change in attitude and actions from those in power.

Millenials are keen to work for companies that are aligned with their values, with 44% of millenials and 49% of Gen Zs saying they've made choices about the organisations they're willing to work for based on their personal ethics. This is a staggering statistic. Young people are aligned with their values and beliefs more than ever and are keen this is reflected in their choice of workplace.

I believe that Creative Industries would like to be part of the solution. The work i'm doing with Universities and businesses are part of the answer.
