Diversity, Equality and Inclusion
We are committed to attracting diversity at all levels of the organisation. Ensuring that we have staff with different experiences and perspectives, who come from a wide range of communities, will support us to increase our skills and abilities and help us to continue to develop a more inclusive culture.
As part of our Diversity, Equality and Inclusion strategy, we use Positive Action as a tool to help address under representation within our workforce.
Positive action is a range of measures, allowed under the Equality Act 2010, which can be taken to encourage and train people from under-represented groups to help them overcome disadvantages in competing with other applicants. Positive Action is not about giving some people favourable treatment and lowering standards just because of their protected characteristic; it is about getting everyone to the same starting line and still employing and promoting on merit. We treat all applicants fairly and in accordance with current legislation.
