Students visit Argos HQ to discuss diversity and equality - posted 15th Oct

Ten students from the RHS Equality and Diversity Committee visited the Argos headquarters in Milton Keynes on Monday 15th October. This followed a previous visit in November 2017 where some students sent a letter to Argos about its catalogue not depicting gender-neutral themes, mixed play and equal representation of males and females, and showing models of all races across its catalogue. This resulted in Argos acknowledging the changes and calling the students back to show its new plans. The students were thrilled to see all the changes that Argos has promised to bring in its 2019 catalogue and then implementing them in the near future with its global partners. The Head of PR and Marketing at Argos said, "We were once again impressed with the Ruislip High students, their articulacy and their level of behaviour." The management at Argos have now shown interest in visiting Ruislip High School during the Equality and Diversity week in November.
