Inclusive Edinburgh

Our commitment to equalities

Our strategy for promoting diversity and inclusion centres around three key themes.

Developing our understanding of how our workforce profile reflects the wider community by:

  • improving the quality of our equalities data
  • communicating with colleagues about the importance of collecting this data
  • highlighting how we can use the data to target our resources more effectively

Building an inclusive culture where each individual feels valued, included, and able to be themselves, by:

  • promoting important dates and events that impact on the lives of our colleagues
  • adopting a highly visible approach to promoting diversity and inclusion

Attracting and retaining a diverse workforce through our approach to talent and resourcing by:

  • looking at how and where we advertise posts to encourage a diverse candidate group
  • reviewing our recruitment and selection process to reduce unconscious bias
  • supporting managers to create an inclusive culture
