Promoting diversity

Focus Nick Davies and Sharmaine Lovegrove



Hachette UK set up a programme to promote diversity, called
Changing the Story, in 2016.
The programme is supported at the highest level of its hierarchy and has hundreds of members, working in order to:

  • find and publish new minority authors by creating new collections of books that help to promote writers from different cultures and social backgrounds;
  • attract and recruit staff and paid interns from different social and ethno-cultural backgrounds, and enable them to pursue higher education and receive accommodation grants in London;
  • create a culture of integration at Hachette UK through mutual support networks for staff members, and a programme in which members of the management committee mentor talented staff of the future from minority backgrounds;
  • provide two days of paid leave per year for staff to spend on community projects.

Changing the Story is central to Hachette UK's business strategy,
and shows our deep commitment to fostering diversity and integrating all talented people, regardless of their age, beliefs, disabilities, ethno-cultural origin, gender, sexual orientation or social background.
