Diversity Works – Opportunities for Minority Ethnic Women


We know that Scotland is an incredibly vibrant and culturally diverse country, and we believe this should be reflected in the way we work. The promotion of diversity of race, gender, age, and culture creates positive and productive workplaces where collaboration and fresh ideas thrive.

Diversity Works is an inclusive business initiative, building on our 2017’s Back To Work project for minority ethnic women returners. This is a Scottish Government funded project aimed at supporting the development of inclusive practice in the recruitment and employment of women from black and ethnic minority communities across the country.

As part of the project we have organised some exciting paid work opportunities backed by the Workplace Equality Fund. These are an important part of the Diversity Works project, as they will demonstrate the journey of minority ethnic women participating in it through the recruitment process from start to finish. 

Here are some of the employers partnering with us on these posts.


Hey Girls is a dynamic Scottish Social Enterprise that wholesales and retails period products, lobbies to eradicate Period Poverty, and aims to make menstrual products available to girls and women in the UK no matter what their personal circumstances.

Wild and Kind Studio is a female-focused Community Interest Company that looks to help those from all marginalised gender groups. Wild & Kind’s aim is to help start-up businesses and artists become self-sufficient, while collaborating with others to create ethical and empowering products.
