Our people-driven approach
In 2018 Havas created All In, our global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) programme, which focuses on a wide range of DE&I initiatives including ethnic and cultural representation, gender equality, LGBTQ+ inclusion, disability, wellness, age, and other topics. All In is an innovative approach to DE&I in that it’s not the typical top-down approach, but rather is focused on engaging all levels of the organisation. We take a “local” approach to setting DE&I strategy as we respect that areas of focus vary greatly by country, culture, and agency. Last year, All In launched 100 actions in 39 agencies and villages.
However, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, programming shifted to initiatives like providing flexible time and even childcare programming for caregivers, leveraging mental health professionals for internal support, and celebrating Pride and Black History Month online through virtual learning and entertainment experiences.Read more
