The 2019 International Women’s Day theme ‘Better the balance. Better the world’ also applies to any workforce. NAG is striving forward in its mission to improve its own workforce diversity, encourage girls and women into technology, and support equality in general.
How are we doing this?
We are a proud Chapter of Women in HPC – NAG was the first company to gain Chapter status in September 2018; we visit schools via our Schools Outreach Program to encourage girls (and boys) to consider taking their love of maths into further education and beyond; NAG colleagues are active STEM Ambassadors who are doing great ‘hands-on’ work guiding children at Coding Clubs; we’ve introduced a Blind Recruitment process to help remove unconscious bias, and speaking up on diversity issues at staff meetings. We are proud to support #IWD2019 #BalanceForBetter
