Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression at People’s Economy

Our Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression Policy sets out how Economy will work towards our aims of diversity of thought, consensus of purpose, challenging injustice and taking an intersectional approach to dismantling structural oppression.

This policy sets out Economy’s approach to recruitment. It was originally a section of Economy’s Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-oppression Policy and should be read in conjunction with that policy.

The Halo Code

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.

We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.

In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employees ability to succeed.
