Gender Equality Network (GEN)
People at Mark Allen are always recognised for their work, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.
However, more can be done to improve equality in the workplace, so the network has been set up to raise awareness of gender-related issues and create solutions informed by employees.
It also aims to promote diversity across the group and work with the EDI group, internal and external teams to support the continuous review of Mark Allen policies and practices, ensuring that they reflect a commitment to gender equality.
Mark Allen is committed to building a working environment which provides equality of opportunity and freedom from all forms of discrimination, and LGBT+ employees and allies are a critical part of the group’s commitment to being inclusive and anti-discriminatory.
