Thrive Wherever You Are, Whoever You Are...

What we're doing

We have a long-standing code of ethics and an Inclusion & Diversity policy. We actively support the many programmes and initiatives across RELX, and since 2020 we have made concrete commitments to directly impact our I&D growth, globally. Open to everyone, our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), foster a creative and innovative culture that improves networking, communication, personal development and inclusion throughout the company.

Our $1M pledge to racial equity

In January 2021, we pledged to donate $1M over the next five years to selected not-for-profit partners around the world who are working to improve inclusivity and diversity in their local communities by supporting social change, fighting injustice and fostering development.

Our Global
Inclusion & Diversity Committees

Our Global Inclusion & Diversity Committees help drive RX’s achievement of our Inclusion Goals around Race & Ethnicity, Gender Equity, LGBTQIA+ and Gender Identity, Disability, and Age Diversity. Committee members meet monthly to organize, execute, and oversee programs that are designed to drive equitable practices for people in underrepresented communities, both internally (colleagues) and externally (job candidates, vendors, customers), and to support people in underrepresented diversity dimensions in the communities in which we live and where our company operates.

The RX Enabled Committee is open to all colleagues around the globe, regardless of disability status, and is currently comprised of colleagues from France, UAE, UK, and USA. The group meets monthly and plans programming to help advance our disability inclusion goals. The primary focus of the group over the past year was to raise awareness and create safety around conversations related to disability and consulting the business around employee and customer policies and practices related to disability inclusion.

Highlights of work of the RX Enabled Committee include:

Launched the “Help Me to Help You” campaign, featuring the compelling, personal story of the journey of our former Global Executive Sponsor for RX Enabled, Merilyne Davies, navigating her career and her own disability

Formed the RELX Executive Enabled Committee, bringing Disability executive sponsors from across RELX together to collaborate on important programming, including consulting around the disability component of the Voluntary Self-Identification initiative

Hosted an awareness event, “Magic for All – Making Our Events Accessible”, featuring guest speaker, Austin Whitney, President and Founder of Ten Fifty Entertainment, the leading provider of Accessibility and Guest Service programs in the USA. Austin shared his expertise on accessible events and easy-to-apply practical tips and takeaways for our events. Topics included: the importance of accessible events and removing stigma around disability, health and safety, legal requirements, commercial impact, digital accessibility, use of language and disability etiquette, and importance of adaptability.

RX led a two-part RELX event honoring International Day for Persons with Disabilities in 2022: “How to Create a Safe and Welcoming Work Environment for People with Disabilities” on November 29, and “How to Make Meetings Accessible for People with Disabilities” on December 1.

The GREC holds these organizations accountable for properly directing funds and leverages our relationships with them to produce an annual Global Race Forum, a 90-minute learning session, open to all RELX employees, featuring speakers and students impacted by our funding.

"When building a strong culture of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Belonging, it is really important that we put the right foundations in place. We have introduced unconscious bias training for anyone who leads a team of people, and we've formed Global I&D committees representing various diversity dimensions, but our immediate priority is to build our network of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). ERGs give everyone in RX a voice, and also an opportunity. People who are stepping into these volunteering roles are building amazing skills by running and supporting these groups, and teaching us so much about who we are, and where we may be falling short."
