The agency promotes and celebrates diversity and inclusion through the work that it does as well as ensuring it is integrated as a key principle in their recruitment process, recognising the valuable contribution each of its team members makes that collectively demonstrate a diversity of talent from respective life backgrounds and experiences.

Says Media House Director, Arika Murtza, “Diversity must always be encouraged and celebrated. The existence of differences in ethnicity, culture, religion and a variety of other factors has a role in the way we perceive the world as well as feel in the workplace. The practice of ensuring that people with these differences experience a sense of connection and encouragement from media as well as at Media House has always remained at the centre of what we do, working to always alleviate prejudices and promote unity in the media as well as in the workplace. Diversity and inclusion are the grounds of the world we like to see and be in.”
Says Media House Director, Tony Gill, “From the heart of the Media House team, to be recognised by the benchmark award ceremony in our industry sector, the PR Week Awards, is such a huge honour and achievement for us, reaffirming, encouraging and inspiring us to continue doing what we’re doing and celebrating diversity representation and inclusion in the global mainstream, led by our beautifully diverse and talented team.
