Can a few well chosen words improve inclusivity?

Yahoo, Facebook, Google and LinkedIn have all recently published diversity reports that reveal workforces that are overwhelmingly male, white and Asian.

Changing this status quo is something we’ve always cared about, though it’s not always been an issue that’s been at the front of our minds. However, this isn’t just a personal issue, but a business one. It’s been proved over and over that having a diverse and inclusive workforce is a key to business success, especially in the field of innovation.

Currently Made by Many’s gender split for fee-earning staff is 33% female and 67% male (good, but could be better), however, at the beginning of the year I wondered whether our job adverts were doing all we could to help us create as inclusive a workforce as possible.

We're looking for a senior designer (with at least 4 years experience) - a creative geek type obsessed with services, platforms and applications.

 
We want someone brave, bold, talented and ready to roll with the punches. We're *not* interested in people who want to design banner ads or marketing sites. If you want to punch the clock and fade into the background, this job isn't for you.
 
Above all, we're looking for a designer who understands what goes into successful digital products and services. You'll have experience of interaction design, concept generation, prototyping, workshops, branding and high-fidelity design. Designing at Made by Many means thinking, talking, collaborating and learning. Whilst some of your time will be spent behind a computer using Photoshop, Keynote and Illustrator, a lot of it will be spent with pen and paper in hand, visualising your ideas and the services we make.
