Redefining DE&I Boundaries for Greater Inclusivity

DE&I in HR has evolved significantly from its roots in diversity and inclusion to encompass equity and now extends its reach to areas like neurodiversity. But can we push these boundaries further?

Meet Gaurav Gupta, Founder of BlockVerse, specialising in addressing the diversity representation supply challenge. Their belief? By aligning recruiters’ skill-related challenges with companies’ diversity issues, a compelling value proposition emerges.

Their approach involves redefining DE&I’s scope—considering the socio-economic impact of potential employees. It’s about identifying those with untapped potential, possessing the know-how but lacking the opportunity to showcase it. BlockVerse partners with companies, employing strategic processes to further dissolve barriers within the DE&I domain.

In this conversation with Managing Director Tim Rayner, Gaurav shares insights into his company, highlighting pivotal examples where reimagining traditional DE&I approaches fosters inclusivity.
