Running for the month of October, the Polished Man campaign celebrates the great men and women in our society: those who paint a nail, raise funds, raise their voice and actively commit to ending violence against children. Over the last seven years, we have raised $7M, engaged over 100,000 people from around the world to get behind this movement funding both trauma recovery and trauma prevention in Australia and around the world. In the past we had the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Kelly Slater and Malcolm Turnbull get behind us, just to name a few!
At ygap, we welcome all people to be unapologetically themselves. We are not the same and that is our greatest strength. It is the collective sum of our individual differences, beliefs, experiences, self-expression and talent that enables us to live out our purpose which is to advance global equity through inclusive entrepreneurship. To truly achieve this, we need a community that is representative of the people we serve; the people of the world.
ygap is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of equity, diversity and inclusion across the organisation and all of our operations.
We have three guiding principles by which we approach our hiring process:
We embrace flexible work arrangements, built on trust and respect.
We encourage applicants from all cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds.
