Shortlisted for the Lord Mayor’s Heart of the City Awards.
Earlier this week we received the exciting news that Impact
has been shortlisted for the Lord Mayor's Heart of the City Awards.
This is a highly prestigious award given to companies who
lead the way in community engagement in London. As one of the
Co-Founders of Impact I have to say that I am both incredibly proud
and excited in equal measures.
Over the last couple of years, we have actively driven our
'Future Proofing Talent through Diversity' programme and have
worked with charity partners, schools and our clients to educate
and inspire school children from diverse and underprivileged
sections of society towards careers in the media and creative
sectors. Not only is this hugely beneficial to the children who
were previously unaware of the potential careers within these
famous and hugely creative companies, but it also opens up talent
channels for our clients to reach sections of society previously
untapped. Our programme not only supports our long term aim
to expand diversity within the industry but also to enhance it with
new and amazing talent.
A big thanks to Warner Music, Dentsu Aegis, UBM and Mediacom
who have got involved through various means, including internships
spots and also hosting 2 hour workshop for children from a number
of Hackney based schools; all of which have been both inspiring and
If you would like to get your company involved please get in
touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be
delighted to tell you all about it!
