Since 2016, Crown has been on a diversity and inclusion journey.  From launching our D&I policy in 2016 to undertaking a global pay parity review in 2019,  we have laid the foundations of a sustainable and meaningful diversity and inclusion programme across the organisation. 

In 2020 we decided to take stock – to see how far we'd come and, with the help our senior leaders, where we wanted to be.  We were able to identify some quick wins including having each employee set at least one D&I goal for 2021 and introducing more D&I e-learning courses.  We also agreed on three key priority areas for 2021 – (a) Visibility – we want to make sure that D&I is part of everything we do and that all of our people are aware of this; (b). Raise awareness – going hand in hand with visibility is raising awareness.  We will be promoting and asking all our employees to promote our resources and the activities we organise; and (c) Focus on inclusion – we want to create an inclusive environment where people feel safe to bring their differences to work.  Only by ensuring that D&I is part of our every day will our employees feel they can bring their authentic selves to work each day and all voices will be heard.

D&I Fast Facts

Each year we produce a quick snap shot of our diversity which we share both internally and externally.  We are proud of the diverse organisation we are and are happy to share this with both our clients and our service partners.

Celebrating Diversity

Each year we celebrate diversity in all its forms, from religious festivals and cultural holidays, international gender days to Pride.  We are proud of the diversity our employees represent and recognise how vital this diversity is to making Crown an innovative and sustainable business.  In March we celebrated International Women’s Day (IWD).  IWD has been celebrated for more than 100 years. It’s a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Every year there’s a theme and this year was #ChoosetoChallenge.  As part of this global event, Crown hosted two panel discussions highlighting a selection of Crown’s own amazing women! Our panellists brought personal examples of ways that they have achieved, challenged and succeeded in their career paths and life choices. The sessions were attended by 100s of Crown’s employees from around the world, who were fascinated to learn more about the women at Crown.  Although IWD has passed, we can all still #ChoosetoChallenge by:

  • taking a stand and helping to create a gender equal world.
  • celebrating women’s achievements and increasing visibility.
  • calling out inequality.
