Diversity and Inclusion
Having a team that reflects the diversity of backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, experiences and viewpoints in our society today is the right thing to do. It also has positive benefits to the quality of our work and the insight that we generate. We recognise that this remains work-in-progress but we are working hard to ensure that:
- Recruitment promotes equal opportunities. For instance, we seek to advertise our vacancies widely to try and ensure we are reaching the widest pool of talent and expertise. We also operate a blind shortlisting approach in order to minimise conscious and unconscious bias.
- The nuts-and-bolts of our organisation encourages inclusion, e.g. we are able to accommodate flexible working arrangements and have a robust equal opportunities policy in place.
- We seek to cultivate a culture where diversity is valued. Where appropriate, we seek to match staff members to projects to encourage inclusion and lived experience, e.g. we are currently undertaking a project about LGBTQI+ health inequalities which is being led and delivered by LGBTQI+ members of staff.
