OUR HISTORY

Our founder, Gillian Arnold, is committed to seeing an increase in the numbers of women working in the STEM industries. Her background is technology, so it is no surprise that we started with Tech. She ran the BCS Women Group for the British Computer Society and won a UN prize for the work of that team.

The recruitment team add the 'E' of STEM; Engineering, to our capabilities and start to help engineering clients find and recruit diverse candidate pools.  We continue with Implicit Bias training and build on it with Micro-Inequities training, anti-racism training and much more.

The team recognises that we can do more with recruitment, and aim our services at diversity based recruitment in IT and Technology roles.  We continue or work on Unconscious Bias and supporting women in technology.
