Diversity & Inclusion
The British Library aims to be an inclusive organisation that values difference and the benefits it brings. In practice, this means treating people as individuals by regularly asking questions and listening, as well as supporting them when their circumstances change.
We’re committed to developing and harnessing the range of talents of our people, and are delighted to have a staff base that shares their expertise with us. We understand that differences exist, not only in race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, and religion/belief, but also in social and educational background, nationality, marital status and family or care responsibilities – and that list is not exhaustive. We also recognise that each of these individual factors bring invaluable different perspectives that together can only help improve the services we offer.
