Modley leads AMS diversity programme for 2021

AMS diversity, equity & inclusion director Paul Modley will lead a dedicated diversity-focused programme for 2021.

The global provider of talent outsourcing and advisory services firm announced that Modley, who led the talent acquisition programme for London 2012 (the Olympic Games), will be responsible for driving the company’s DE&I programme for the business. Sponsored by the AMS innovation function, Modley will be responsible for ensuring the business “optimises every opportunity for DE&I in the organisation’s proposition, service and across its own workforce”.

Modley said in a prepared statement: “Our vision is to foster a culture of inclusion and belonging, and to do that, we are constantly challenging ourselves, each other and our clients.”

AMS last year introduced an ethnicity plan, which included a commitment to double the numbers of ethnically diverse employees at senior leadership level by the end of this year [2021]. Steps to help achieve the plan have included reverse mentorship schemes, a commitment to producing an ethnicity pay gap report and the launch of a tailored middle management development programme.
