An update on Spektrix team demographics

Members of the UK Spektrix team gathered in the London office in late 2019

Following our recent commitments to build meaningful and lasting change for our team, our business and our industry, Spektrix is now sharing a report on the demographics of our team. As a company committed to anti-racism, we believe diversity, equity, and inclusion must be actively addressed and prioritised and that it is crucial to hold ourselves publicly accountable to do so.

We recognise that our team diversity falls short of our goal to reflect the communities in which we work. We are dissatisfied with our current makeup and believe that beyond improving our proportionate diversity, the more we progress toward our goal the stronger we will be as a company.

With limited recruitment likely to happen in the foreseeable future due to the current uncertainty in our industry we won’t have much opportunity to influence these numbers this year. However, we are committed to improving our processes and building an inclusive culture and will continue to prioritise this work. We will publish updates on our progress annually. 

The global Spektrix team currently has 124 members in total, excluding the board. The following data represents the 82% of team members who responded to our July 2020 survey.
