At Key Fund we believe in the power of people to find positive solutions to the issues facing their communities, and that they are best placed to make lasting change. We know that this isn’t always an easy journey, and so we work actively with applicants to support them throughout the investment process, walking beside them, building trusting and lasting relationships for the future. We also understand that success comes from the way our people, our funders, and our investees – the individuals who make Key Fund a success – work together using their different backgrounds, skills and experience to achieve more, and so we are committed to diversity and inclusion, to breaking down barriers wherever we can. It’s not just about targets, it’s about our values and understanding that diversity makes us stronger, better and more effective. This starts with the way in which we recruit, and goes through our investment processes, to the way in which we help our investees to move forward and do even more. If you share our values, let’s make a difference together.
To ensure this is applied as part of the application and awards process for the Social Enterprise Support Fund we will:
- Engage with diverse networks
- Continue to integrate inclusivity in the application and awards process
- An awards panel that is diverse and reflects the communities that the fund is trying to reach
