Diversity and Inclusion Council

We aim to lead the charge on making the digital industry a place we all want to work.

About the council

We want a digital industry we can feel proud of – one that is as forward thinking in the way in deals with issues of diversity and inclusion as it is with technology. The BIMA Diversity & Inclusion Council was established to ensure we lead the charge.


Whether challenging racism or sexual harassment, eliminating the gender pay bias, or creating positive workspaces where everyone feels valued, we’re working with organisations and individuals to make the digital industry a place we all want to work.
