Zero Dependency: the end of technology supplier lock-in
Supplier dependency has been a norm in technology consulting for too long. We explore how organisations can set themselves free with Zero Dependency.
As a people-focused business, we are committed to diversity and inclusion and promoting equality of opportunity for all and are keen to actively join in and keep the conversations going around how we can best achieve this.
As part of that, we ran a webinar in honour of Pride month. The topic was on what employers can do to show up for all employees every day, rather than just in June for the month of Pride.
The panel was led by our Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Maya Sargent, who was joined by our guest panellists Nathan Nalla, Founder & Director of Be The Riot and Stefania Chaplin, EMEA Solution Architect at Secure Code Warrior.
We’ve put together some of the highlights from the webinar below.
What is rainbow washing?
In its essence, rainbow washing is when a rainbow is added to the usual imagery of an individual, company, or corporation, in the hope that they are deemed allies to the LGBTQ+ community without working towards making a real change. In the business world, this is usually seen as companies using Pride month to colour their logos with the Pride flag whilst doing nothing with regards to making changes to their company culture and/or policies that would better the LGBTQ+ community within their current and future workforce.
What is Pride Month?
Pride is a month (June) dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ+ communities all around the world. It’s about the acceptance, equality, education in LGBTQ+ history, celebrating the work of LGBTQ+ people, and raising awareness of issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. Whilst progress has been made, there are still many challenges today that the community face and companies need to take time to listen and learn before jumping on the bandwagon and putting up the pride flag.
“I find with Pride, it’s an opportunity to be myself, which I wish I could do all year round.” Stefania Chaplin, EMEA Solution Architect at Secure Code Warrior
