Diversity and Inclusion

We’re breaking down barriers to inclusive online experiences

​Eames Partnership has partnered with the accessibility technology provider, Recite Me to enable website visitors to customise their online experience in a way that best suits their individual needs. It is estimated that 20% of people have a disability that can prevent them from reading and understanding online content. Those who are most susceptible to access barriers are those who struggle with decreased vision, learning difficulties, literacy, language/linguistic problems, attention disorders and physical disabilities. Recite Me accessibility software implemented on our website provides users with the opportunity to customise their online experience. The toolbar includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages, including 35 texts to speech and styling options. This includes changes to the font size, type, and colour. Having secured a Bronze accreditation with Clear Assured in January 2022, this is another step forward in our equality, diversity and inclusion efforts and further demonstrates how we put inclusion at our core. To access the assistive toolbar on the Eames Partnership website, click the circular blue accessibility icon at the bottom right of the website. --- Recite Me functionality is also available on our brand sites: Eames Group, Eames Consulting, and ECMS.

The importance of intersectionality [GRID Podcast]

By Charlie Thomas


The importance of intersectionality [GRID Podcast]

In this special 3-part series of The GRID Podcast, we celebrate Pride Month.We are bringing together some of the LGBTQ+ community from within the reinsurance and insurance market. In this episode, our expert panel discusses some of the more challenging issues when it comes to LGBTQ+. I’ve often heard complaints that employers are too quick to lump all members of the LGBTQ+ community together as a homogenous group and assume that all of their wants and needs are the same. In this episode, there is a poignant take on the lost learning opportunities from lumping everyone together, which then segues into some really important points about another topic I’m passionate about when it comes to D&I – the importance of intersectionality.You can listen to the full episode on Apple, Spotify and other podcast platforms. ​​​​
