Taylor Bennett Foundation

Taylor Bennett is committed to equal opportunities at work. Our mandate is quite simply to find the best person for a job. We oppose discrimination on grounds of age, gender, sexuality, disability, religious belief, race or ethnicity.

In corporate affairs, people from black and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds are under-represented. In response to this, we set up the Taylor Bennett Foundation in 2008. The Foundation provides 10-week training programmes for BAME graduates, during which trainees are paid a training allowance, to encourage them to make a career in communications. All Taylor Bennett employees contribute time to the Foundation, including mentoring and discipline-specific training sessions, and are assessed on their contribution each year. So far around 200 graduates have been through the programme and over 80% are now working in the corporate affairs industry.

Taylor Bennett and the Foundation have gained external recognition, winning several awards: a Lord Mayor’s Dragon Award for Social Inclusion in 2010; the 2012 Business in the Community ‘Race for Opportunity’ Collaboration and Partnership Award; a Highly Commended award in the LondonlovesTalent Diversity and Mentoring category run by online business site LondonlovesBusiness; and, in 2015, a Special Recognition award at the inaugural PRCA/PR Week Internship Awards.

Taylor Bennett’s Managing Partner, Matthew Wall, is a Trustee for the Taylor Bennett Foundation, and Taylor Bennett remains the largest funder of the charity.
