As the UK’s principal cultural relations organisation the British Council is strongly committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. Our work is centered on building meaningful, enduring and respectful relationships across different cultures. We cannot do this if we do not have a commitment to equality, inclusion and valuing diversity.

We have developed a range of tools and initiatives to help us build diversity into our work. Some of these are described below.
