To help raise awareness of and celebrate individuality, employee training is available across the organisation, which includes awareness of unconscious bias and how this impacts our everyday decisions both in and outside the workplace.
We strongly believe that raising awareness and providing support at an early age to help young people make informed choices regarding their future careers is important. We are committed to being proactive in taking steps to inspire and encourage young people into STEM Careers.
