005: Representation Matters - Gary Rayneau: Diversity in the Media Industry

Gary Rayneau is the co-founder of Project 23. After 15 years of experience in the media and advertising industry at Dennis Publishing, Gary grouped together with work colleague Elaine Dela Cruz to form Project 23. This was as a result of the progression towards a more diverse and inclusive workplace in the media industry. Gary is passionate about the power culture has to affect business performance and increase staff happiness.  He believes culture by definition only works if it's genuinely inclusive, however in today’s workplace that is not always as easy as it sounds. Pace of change, unconscious biases and ‘the way we used to do things’ are issues that we all face that can hinder as well as help. He also believes that with right the intent and a data-led strategy guiding the way, a high performing inclusive culture will soon be the expected norm for all. Our host Max caught up with Gary to get his thoughts on how Project 23 is impacting business culture for good. #theequalgroup #representationmatters #diversityandinclusion
