The D&I Issue
The past month has been an exciting one; the hospitality sector was able to welcome customers indoors once again, while the coronavirus vaccine is now being given to those aged 30 and above (correct at time of publishing) – it seems that we are well under way to some form of normal life once again.
With a lot of attention on the vaccine, it does seem fitting to share with you that this month’s cover interview is with pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca, the firm responsible for developing one of the COVID-19 vaccines alongside Oxford University.
In a world-first exclusive with myGrapevine magazine, Rebekah Martin, Senior Vice President of Reward and Inclusion, shares how the organisation lent on its inclusive and open culture, as well as its senior leadership, to build an environment that enabled a vaccine to be rolled out, while also ensuring each and every staff member was thought of during this uncertain time.
Plus, as this issue celebrates all things D&I, we also gain insight from Weetabix Food Company’s Head of HR on how its HR team has played a crucial role in its D&I agenda. In addition, we have exclusives from Volvo and Entain, as well as two brand new pieces of content including a piece which covers content from the myGrapevine community – A Day in the life of... a myGrapevine Member – and What's trending in leadership, which showcases content from our sister brand, Grapevine Leaders.
I hope you enjoy reading.
