In 2020, the team ramped up the business’s efforts to help those affected by the rise of BLM protests. The business committed to becoming an actively anti-racist organisation globally. In just seven months, the IE&D team provided anti-racism training for every employee around the world, and enrolled the activism of OLIVER’s Founder and Chief Executive, Simon Martin. Simon committed 100% of his time to launch the Global Change Maker programme – a diverse group of 40 (and counting) ‘Global Change Makers’ from within the business. This group is unified by one ambition: to ensure inclusivity is at the heart of our business.
