Here’s our 5th episode in our second series of ‘Think digital, act human’. This one is all about the importance of diversity in the workplace.

Clara Greo, our guest, is a freelance service designer and equity advocate.

This is a frank and honest conversation about how employers can start making small differences to improve diversity.

It’s well known that diverse teams build better services, and here Clara gives her tips on how to support people of colour within an organisation.

The facts or figures we refer to were accurate when we recorded this interview in October 2022.
