Our commitment to change
We stand against racism, and we stand with our Black friends, family members, and colleagues: Black Lives Matter.
One of TrueLayer's core principles is to value people:
People matter at TrueLayer. We believe that we will win together as a team. We are not here to compete with one another but rather to support, collaborate and bring out the best in one another. We celebrate each other’s unique traits and value individual strengths while recognising that we all have weaknesses. This is a place where each person can be their authentic TRUEself.
1. Establish I&D reportingWe have tasked our Talent team to re-start collecting inclusion and diversity metrics across our organisation and hiring pipeline. When we know better, we do better.
2. Internal support, training, and education about inclusion, diversity, and anti-racismWe have tasked our People team to start rolling out unconscious bias training to everyone at TrueLayer. Acknowledging that we have behavioural differences, and actively calibrating to ensure those differences don’t impede togetherness, belonging, and community, are vital to our growth as our organisation.We are going to roll out an education program involving a range of knowledgable speakers to talk to us about race, inequality, social bias and progressive affirmative action. Educating ourselves is the first step to speaking up about objectionable behaviour in our organisation, and our community.
3. Improving our hiring process and making I&D a key metricI&D will be a key hiring metric and KPI for all Hiring Leads. Our People team will work on embedding this across our organisation. Part of leadership is acknowledging we have a problem and are doing something tangible about it — leadership must be held to account.
4. Helping to fund black charities and community groupsOver the next few weeks, we will add charities and NGOs that support the Black community in the U.K. through our app, DonateDirect. We’ll match donations up to £10,000 and waive all fees on donations to these organisations.
Our commitment to all of our colleagues and to our wider community is this: we start doing better today.
