Welcome to the 2021 Gender Equality Report

Welcome to this year’s UK For Everyone Report. Since its incorporation, YunoJuno has held the belief that transparency not only helps inform the decision making process of both freelancers and hirers alike, it also drives the future of work forward. That's why this report is a free resource to all.

No required email before downloading. No catch.

Why this matters

Freelancers are doing work that will be seen by billions of people. So, as an industry, we have a duty to ensure that we’re creating work that influences a culture we are proud of. And even if we at YunoJuno can’t affect the work that gets made, we can highlight where there is room to level the playing field by showcasing great creative and tech talent regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, or beliefs. In doing so, we can help the freelance community and client network logging on to YunoJuno access to a talent pool as diverse as the people they will influence.

This is the motivation behind this report and we are proud to champion equality in every way. For everyone.
