Our commitment

To create meaningful change for our clients, our people and our communities, we need diverse talent and diverse ways of working. We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive culture where we can do our best work.

Our employees should recognise themselves in our company policies and practices, regardless of factors like their religion, family responsibilities, gender identities and disabilities. We offer inclusive benefits and our remuneration structure was designed for our team, by our team, to be simple and transparent. This means that people at the same grade receive equal remuneration and comparable progression opportunities.

Diversity, equity and inclusion is a strategic priority at Gate One. We recognise that diversity of thought fosters high-performing teams, encourages innovation and simply benefits everyone. We’ve always committed to offering a transparent and inclusive culture founded on a meritocracy. I'm proud to be our DE&I lead and it inspires me to collaborate with team members across all grades and functions, as we continue to progress on this journey.

Hear from our team

Hear from Sonia Cochet, Gate One’s head of people and talent, about the importance of DE&I and what it means for our business.

Gate One celebrates individuality and divergent thinking. We've made great progress in fostering a diverse and inclusive culture but recognise that there is still work to be done, both within Gate One and across the wider consulting industry. It's a challenge we've set ourselves and which we are determined to meet.
