Important in everything we do.
We are working towards playing a full role in decolonising development, reflecting on what this means and how we should be rethinking our practises to truly make an impact for children across the world.
We aim to create an inclusive work environment where staff can be themselves. It allows us to be innovative in our thinking and in the way we work to support and empower the most vulnerable to have a voice and build for the future.
We have a responsibility to defend children everywhere – as well as our staff, volunteers and the people we work with – against bias, discrimination and harassment.
We have been investing in improvements to our workplace culture for some years and, in 2020, we produced our first Diversity and Inclusion Strategy - Free to Be Me. It incorporates learning from the 2018 Shale review of our workplace culture, organisational reports from our BAME and LGBT+ Allies staff networks, and staff feedback.
Our D&I strategy looks to achieve a more equitable and inclusive workplace for everyone, and to support the work to empower communities and children.
