Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion diversity icon

At LAB3 we encourage you to be yourself and bring your whole self. An array of perspectives at LAB3 fuels our innovation and challenger mindset and makes us an industry trailblazer. Six years young, we have established an organisational culture that at its heart is inclusive and welcoming of all people, no matter their background or personal characteristics. We encourage all our employees to be themselves and bring their whole selves because we value embracing an array of differences and voices. 

Our first DEI strategy pillar, Our Culture - Inclusivity, is where we focus on creating a welcoming workplace that celebrates our many differences, that is free from all forms of discrimination and where our team members feel welcome and unafraid to be themselves. Two of our values BE TRUE and TEAM UP underpin our DE&I strategy. These are:

  • Be true: Speak with honesty, think with sincerity, act with integrity.
  • Team up: Be yourself, bring your best, together we will do great things

We have worked hard to achieve such an open and inviting culture and have done so by ensuring our leaders are accessible, and offering formalised flexible work practices, initiatives to celebrate cultural diversity and by focusing on gender equality. This includes initiatives to ensure our workplace supports women to thrive in their careers. We have an internally developed program for women known as Breakthrough, and further each year we sponsor several women to participate in Microsoft's Women Rising program. 

Gender Equality

Gender Equality diversity icon

Another DEI strategy pillar,  Gender - Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, is about shaping a workplace where women can Fear Less and Achieve More, where all Genders are equal, where opportunities are provided on merit and barriers are removed. Our focus encompasses fairness in gender pay gaps, composition targets, supportive policies and enabling growth opportunities.

Break through is our internal initiative to support LAB3 women fear less, thrive, and achieve more in their careers. The aim is to build a strong community of women, foster social connections and provide professional development opportunities. 
Breakthrough comprises of monthly sessions held throughout the year, alternating between facilitated social catch ups and development experiences.  

To ensure Breakthrough is relevant to ALL women across LAB3, regardless of your roles and ambitions - professional development will focus on understanding your individual strengths, getting ahead, and overcoming common biases women have or are impacted by (consciously or unconsciously) in the workplace. 

 

Life & Culture

Fear less, achieve more. Be inspired and do incredible things, now and into the future.

Values

Be true:

Speak with honesty, think with sincerity, act with integrity. 

Team up:

Be yourself, bring your best, together we will do great things.

Think ahead:

Look for new ways to achieve more, never settle for less. 

Stand out:

Challenge the future and be exceptional. Why be anything else. 

In addition to our values:

You will have noticed our catch cry Fear Less Achieve More. This drives our entrepreneurialism and impacts how we approach everything at LAB3. Boosting our catch cry is the response, challenge accepted. We nurture a fail-safe environment which is a necessary part of technology innovation and also, a straight-out reflection that we are all only human and doing our best.

LGBTIQ+

Extending our inclusivity pillar of the DEI strategy, supporting the voice behind the LGBTQIA+ community is our way to carry ourselves as a true ally and again reinforce that here at LAB3, we strive to create a workplace where everyone is welcome and safe, no matter how you identify. 

We recognize as we get a little bigger, and a little older, it's time for us to evolve and elevate our efforts to the next level. 2023 was a major year where our teams rally together to highlight allyship in our workplace. Whilst we have policies and codes of conduct that highlight what we will not tolerate in our workplace, we are also working on raising awareness, education and applying more inclusive language and practices across the business such as the choice for pronouns. 

We are also a registered member of the Welcome Here Project which is a recognised community focused initiative centered around further welcoming and celebrating everyone, everywhere. This is our way of participating in spreading the visible word, supporting and respecting people of all genders or sexual orientations and building a positive work culture.
