Working with Brands across the globe
We are incredibly proud to support BYP, its allies and community partners on this fantastic initiative which strives to elevate Black professionals and promotes equity and equality in the workplace.
Accenture is more than just a partner to BYP as we have worked closely with BYP for three years to diversify their workforce and to also support the network's mission. Accenture made a hire from the BYP Leadership Conference and we will continue to work with them to engage and recruit Black talent. Accenture will also kick start a mentoring opportunity with BYP with 40 mentors signed up to support and share knowledge in their areas of expertise to upskill Black talent.
Zendesk started to collaborate with BYP in the summer of 2020 through our recruiting team. We leveraged BYP by posting Zendesk jobs to their recruiting website, and participated in multiple BYP events (last one brought 120 leads to our recruiting team which was fabulous!). We also launched a mentorship program with 18 Zendesk mentors mentoring BYP members. Every single BYP employee I have had the chance to collaborate with has truly been able to develop strong relationships with us and deliver to very high standards.
FARFETCH has worked with BYP for the last 12 months, in this time we have co-created some fantastic content, hosted a webinar, and hired candidates from the BYP recruiting site.
Very happy to announce that we have a fab candidate joining our team next month thanks to the BYP recruiting site! We will definitely be using them again next time we need to advertise a vacant role!
It’s been invaluable partnering with BYP over the past year. The work they’re doing in connecting diverse talent with businesses is so important and it's been great to be a part of the positive change that the BYP is bringing to the industry. From hosting networking events to webinars and conferences we’ve collaborated on, we’re excited to continue our partnership and see what further value we can bring to the community together!
Networking is a fundamental part of personal and professional growth, and BYP offers their members a great platform to engage, explore and build meaningful connections. There was a real diversity of life experience in the room, and I personally found my conversations to be inspiring and insightful. I made many new connections, and I am proud that Gartner continues to partner with BYP as we strive to add value not only as a potential employer, but also as a partner that can help BYP members achieve their full potential in whatever field they choose to pursue.

Our course comes with a certification upon completion that can be shared online as indication of conscientious support.
