Our commitment to

Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to treating people fairly and taking the nine protected characteristics below into consideration in all aspects of our work: -

  • race
  • gender
  • gender reassignment
  • disability
  • sexual orientation
  • religion or belief
  • age
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • marriage and civil partnership

The Wakefield district has a growing multicultural community and we welcome this diversity and recognise the many benefits it brings to the area.

One of the main ways we can ensure that we value the diversity of the communities we serve is by promoting an understanding of diversity and inclusion issues with employees and customers.

We do this by providing all our employees online diversity training with the opportunity to receive more in-depth training on a range of issues from domestic abuse to dementia awareness.

We have a Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and a Single Equality Scheme and Action Plan that have been developed with the involvement of a number of employee and customer groups.

We publish our diversity activities and outcomes annually in the Diversity and Inclusion Annual Report.
