Why are we committed to DE&I at IHG?
At IHG, we want to open doors, break down barriers and create meaningful difference so you feel proud to belong here. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our leadership and talent and putting the right decision-making processes around actions, so all colleagues feel included, valued and respected.
We’ve had an active DE&I agenda for many years, to read all about it check out our recent DEI Progress Report reflecting on, where we’re at, where we’re going and how we’re getting there when it comes to creating an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive at IHG.
Global Inclusion & Wellbeing Week
Global Inclusion & Wellbeing Week at IHG gives colleagues the opportunity to shine a spotlight on the work we’re doing to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture. We openly discuss how we can all make a difference when it comes to DE&I and the importance of creating a like-minded community of colleagues who can share their experiences and insights.
IHG Change100 Programme
Since 2017, we continue to build our relationship with Leonard Chesire disability charity, with who we have partnered on The Change 100 Programme in the UK. This fantastic initiative provides three-months paid work experience opportunities with top employers for talented students and graduates with disabilities.
Rebecca Buckman, a Global Finance intern who works part-time and is fully remote, credited her mentor and line manager for easing her into the Group Treasury team. Rebecca is also certain that having such a flexible work schedule allowed her to manage energy levels alongside her disabilities. As a final note, she added “I really enjoyed working in such an inclusive company – it has given me a lot of hope for the future!”.
Prior to her internship, HR Talent intern Parisa Karamlou had never worked in the HR field but wanted to gain more exposure in the area. She recognises the effort her team took to get her involved in different projects as being integral to her development in her role. Parisa also views the feedback, advice, and daily guidance received as key to her success, managing both her workload and disabilities in a way that felt do-able for her. She said, “working with the HR team I got first-hand exposure to how welcoming the company truly is and the steps they are taking to become more inclusive; this made me feel at ease and supported.”
Alfie Marshall, a HR intern that works fully remotely says IHG has been fantastic in helping him maintain his second job as a Tour Guide and but allowing him to fulfil his commitments as a student. He went into this internship expecting a very difficult few months in balancing his schedule, but was happy to be surrounded by an incredibly understanding team. Alfie gives credit to his line manager, who got him involved as much as possible.
