International Human Solidarity Day

20 December

Gray Dawes would like to wish everyone Happy International Human Solidarity day!

Here at Gray Dawes, our ESG (Environmental and Social Governance) strategy is driven by our newly appointed Global Brand Ambassador, Laura Busby.

To celebrate the day she is leading our monthly Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging internal focus group meeting.

The purpose of this group is to continually drive a culture of belonging across the business, underpinned by a key value that each employee “feels comfortable in being themselves, all of the time”.

This group also focuses on how we can encourage a more diverse workforce into the travel sector.

A recent McKinsey report revealed that those companies that focus the most on racial and ethnic diversity are 36% more likely to have financial returns that are above average for their industry.

International Human Solidarity Day has been developed as part of the UN’s new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda.

Find out more about the initiative on the UN website.

It’s strong evidence that building a diverse workforce not only makes for a better, fairer future for all, but can directly boost business success. Put simply, inclusivity is a win-win for all involved.

However you choose to celebrate, we’re with you!
