partnerships

A key facet of Gravity Media’s drive towards enhanced ESG performance is the series of partnerships we have entered into with social enterprises, community-minded organisations and government departments – with a focus on a diversity and inclusion. We’ve signed up to some great initiatives already, and the list is growing.

ESG

Rise is a UK-based advocacy group for gender diversity within the broadcast technology sector. Supporting women from all backgrounds working in broadcast media, it aims to ensure a sustainable pipeline of female talent in the areas of engineering, technical operations, sales, marketing and business.

Gravity Media is proud to be supporting Rise’s work, including its Rise Up education outreach programme, annual Awards, networking events and training sessions.

As part of the government’s Plan for Jobs, the Kickstart Scheme is an initiative being run by the Department for Work and Pensions that will create thousands of new, fully subsidised jobs for young people across the UK.

The six-month placements are open to those aged 16-24 who are claiming Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment. There will also be extra funding to help young people move into sustained employment after they have completed their Kickstart placement.

Keen to support young people seeking a career in our sector, Gravity Media has submitted an application to support 10 roles. We will provide an update on our application in due course.
