Design for Diversity
Regardless of race, gender, sexuality, disability or age - there is room for all of us. We believe that everyone deserves to be represented in the interiors sector.
That’s why we’re proud to take the #designfordiversity pledge - a great initiative to promote inclusivity and diversity within the interiors industry. The brainchild of interior designer Rukmini Patel and Kate Watson-Smyth, editor of award-winning interiors blog Mad About The House - Design for Diversity is a nationwide campaign that aims to tackle the lack of representation in the design industry.
At Nest, we stand in solidarity against racism, oppression, violence and injustice. We are committed to seeking out and sharing diverse voices within design, supporting those voices that need to be amplified. We don’t have all the answers, but we do hope to seek them out and for us, this is an important first step in turning our words into actions.
We are taking the Design for Diversity pledge to ensure we continue to make a difference and do our bit to bring more diversity into the interiors industry.
Design for Diversity is a community effort and by adding our voice to the pledge, we can work together to make a true difference. So let’s keep the conversation going, and not allow the lack of diversity within design to continue. Let’s open the door to change.
As an online retailer, we have a range of suppliers and products but would always welcome more submissions and products from BAME designers and suppliers. We are open for business from all backgrounds.
We pledge that our channels - our websites, blogs and social media - will at all times endeavour to include people of every colour and gender and sexuality.
We pledge to seek out Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates to interview for roles that arise in our businesses. We will always hire the best person for the job, but we will endeavour to bring more diverse candidates through the process. We stop short of positive discrimination and we reject tokenism.
We pledge that any events we hold - be they panel discussion or talks, dinners, receptions, or media events - will endeavour to include people of all colours and genders.
