‘Standing for Fairness’ is our policy for ensuring equality in all our work.
At People, we pride ourselves on encouraging each other to expand our thinking, nurture human connections and grow.
Every live experience can give people the magic of the unexpected, the connection of an instant community, and the inspiration to do things differently.
We know that each of our events sends a message, and we use our work to challenge assumptions and share empowering representations of human beings and what we can achieve. Our events communicate the importance of a world where
everyone can pursue their ambitions and happiness, free from prejudice.
We produce shared experiences that include – uniting audiences while respecting and celebrating their diversity.
We listen, empathise, invite new perspectives, and work for good. Our hiring and casting processes, contracting and projects all reflect a firm commitment to justice and fair opportunities for all people, regardless of nationality, gender, sexuality, disability, class background, ethnicity, faith, or any other aspect of identity.
We are also actively building programmes to encourage people from underrepresented groups to engage with our work and our industry.
Experience has taught us that the most powerful thing we can do is always put people first. That’s the idea behind our name: the idea our company was founded upon. This principle ensures that we always protect our employees, collaborators and audiences from discrimination, and that we work towards better representation and an equal, thriving society for all.
