The British Council values the diversity of the United Kingdom (UK) and the other countries it works in.
We are committed to equal opportunity and diversity. We are focus on seven areas of diversity:
Work - Life balance
The last area we believe is a cross cutting issue that affects of the lives of all of us.
We believe diversity complements our work in cultural relations and promoting the UK.
We have developed our Integrated Equality Scheme. to help us promote equality and eliminate discrimination in the areas of gender, race and disability. Find out how we are applying this scheme worldwide here.
For details of our corporate approach to Equal Opportunities and Diversity see our corporate website: http://www.britishcouncil.org/home-diversity.htm
The British Council is committed to equality of opportunity and positive action to promote equality of opportunity. We believe that an Equal Opportunities Policy helps to ensure that there is no unjustified discrimination in the recruitment, retention, training and development of staff on the basis of gender, marital status, sexual identity, religious belief, political opinion, race, work pattern, age, disability or HIV/AIDS status, socio-economic background, spent convictions, trade union activity or membership, or on the basis of having or not having dependants. We also believe that an Equal Opportunities Policy benefit employees and potential employees and helps achieve dignity at work and contributes to providing the best possible services to partners and clients.
