Our ongoing commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion

While acknowledging the journey ahead in achieving our equality, diversity and inclusion objectives, we are actively pursuing positive measures as a unified team and business. This commitment involves consistently challenging ourselves to improve and strive for better.

Our Framework for Fairness

As trend forecasters, we’re responsible for helping to shape the product lines and messaging for some of the world’s largest and most impactful organisations. We have a responsibility to make sure our trend forecasts are accurate and to mitigate personal taste or preference for the trend intelligence that presents itself to us.

TrendBible’s Framework for Fairness is our pledge to establishing realistic diversity, equality and inclusion goals tailored to our own unique business, location, and industry. Aligned with B Corp principles, we are working towards certification. Our framework holds all our stakeholders accountable in areas such as staff training, talent championing, internships, our change makers initiative, social and geographical inclusion, design, ethics, and environmental responsibility.
