Code Worldwide


Code Worldwide
Started in 2003, Code Worldwide is a digital strategy and technology consultancy with 172 employees and clients ranging from Peugeot to the Post Office. To make sure its workforce is reflective of “Real Britain”, the firm has ramped up its diversity and inclusion efforts over the past year. Driven by Code’s managing director Carolyn Stebbings, initiatives include: mandated unconscious bias training for all employees; a new Flexible Working Manifesto; a partnership with a mental health coaching organisation Sanctus to offer free, confidential coaching sessions to employees every month; and a speaking platform called “Curiosity Labs” where employees are encouraged to share their personal stories and diverse backgrounds. Last year, Code took on 10 apprentices and mentored 15 pupils from the University of Greenwich, which has the highest percentage of BAME students in the UK.
