Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
The group is an informal space where thought-provoking conversation takes place between colleagues.
This data enables the team to create an informed ED&I strategy for our next cycle and prioritise our short-term objectives.
AKD Solutions are external consultants who are supporting us in creating a challenging, ambitious and achievable DIAP.
Completing the self-diagnostic tool of this framework informs our strategy & DIAP work.
This initiative, created by the Government’s Levelling up Department, seeks to increase diversity at board level by providing a 12-month training programme to those individuals who would not ordinarily be represented at Board level. In addition, two colleagues are just coming to the end of their 2023 Boardroom Apprentice programme and we understand one colleague has secured a place with a host board for 2024.
The programme aims to increase employability of graduates from a global majority by providing meaningful work experience. The teams involved in this project are HR, Communications, Performance Data & Athlete Health.
The sessions we have hosted, on topics such as neurodiversity, menopause and Black History Month, are available on our Learning Arena to enable colleagues to watch the recording if they missed the live sessions.
For example, job applicants who declare they have a disability and meet the minimum essential criteria, are automatically shortlisted as part of the Government’s Disability Confident scheme and questions are sent to candidates prior to interview.
