A Place for Everyone

Our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Commitments

As a diverse business which believes in equal opportunities, Informa Markets is committed to:

  • creating environments where everyone feels valued, safe and comfortable in bringing their whole self to work, regardless of their gender, identity, disability, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation

  • supporting inclusivity in all that we do by removing barriers and actively encouraging accessibility for all

  • promoting fair and inclusive practices, and refusing to accept discriminatory behaviour through a culture of accountability

  • developing our own understanding, and that of the communities we work with, of diversity, inclusion and belonging issues, including racism and social injustice

We asked some of our Informa Markets colleagues across the globe to share what diversity means to them – here’s what they had to say.

Our Colleague Networks

Colleague participation and feedback are at the heart of our Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging strategy. One of the ways in which we’re working to become a fairer, more inclusive business and ensure everyone’s voice is heard is through our colleague networks.

These internal communities are made up of colleagues from across the globe, who meet regularly to discuss key issues, share experiences and suggest improvements. Each network is sponsored by two members of our Senior Management Team, who act as mentors and advocates, and help to action positive change across the business.

Currently, we have four networks:


Our Accessibility networks represent those with disabilities and diverse
abilities. They strive to elevate awareness around disabilities, illness and mental health conditions, and improve access for all.


The Balance networks at Informa Markets build upon the Group-wide
AllInforma Balance initiative, which is focused on supporting gender
balance throughout the business in all areas and at all levels.


Our Nations networks represent and focus on Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) diversity. They aim to connect and support colleagues from underrepresented groups, celebrate different cultures and improve
awareness of challenges such as racism, discrimination, inequality and


Our Rainbow networks represent and focus on LGBTQIA+ diversity and are closely aligned to the wider AllInforma Rainbow network, which aims to connect and support colleagues who identify as LGBTQIA+ or who support or want to learn more about the LGBTQIA+ community.

Policy and Reporting

Informa’s global Diversity and Inclusion Policy helps colleagues to understand their responsibilities around diversity and inclusion, while our internal Speak Up platform provides a confidential way for colleagues to report any concerns.

We publish a UK Colleagues and Pay report each year as part of government gender pay gap reporting and to share information on our approach to talent diversity and inclusivity. Read the latest Informa UK Colleagues and Pay Report 2019, or see the 2018 Colleagues and Pay report here.

Informa Markets Supplier Diversity Portal

At Informa Markets, we believe that a diverse business is a stronger, more sustainable one. We’re committed to creating equal opportunities and supporting inclusivity in all that we do.

One way we’re doing this is through our Supplier Diversity Portal, which aims to support greater diversity across our global supplier base and sourcing processes.

We want to make our business more accessible to small or diverse businesses, who share our values and want to join us in helping our customers to trade, innovate and grow.

If you’re a minority-owned or other diverse supplier, we’d love to hear from you.
