Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Group wins award

Category: Awards, Equality Assessment, Equality in the workplace, Award, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, Supported Housing, PA Housing


It gives us huge pleasure to announce that our Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Advisory Group has been named 'Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team of Year' at the Housing Heroes Awards this year!

'Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team of Year'

The EDI Group, which now has 23 members from across the organisation, originally came together to review and renew policies and procedures relating to equality, diversity and inclusivity. To begin with, the team focused on cultural and religious sensitivities within PA's communities; for example, ensuring repairs colleagues understood Islamic hygiene, and the reasons why running water in bathrooms is so important for Muslim households.

However, over the last 12 months, it has expanded its own remit, and is now at the forefront of ensuring PA delivers its strategic commitment to serving all staff members and residents, whatever their age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, religion or race.

The group's members are drawn from different locations, departments, levels of seniority, but have a shared commitment to achieving complete inclusivity, delivering trailblazing initiatives that guarantee every colleague and resident knows they are valued.

In addition to their day jobs, each member takes personal responsibility for an area of the Housing Diversity Network's self-assessment criteria.

The group already has exciting and ambitious plans for the next 12 months as we continue our work on revamping our Equality & Diversity Policy and Action Plan, but this win gives us a fantastic platform to be a real force within the sector to champion our Everybody is Unique approach.

What Makes Us Unique

Huge congratulations to everybody involved in this important work!
