Diversity & Inclusion

‘A diverse, inclusive, international, economic Department with people confident and capable of delivering the priorities and outcomes of our ambitious trade and prosperity agenda’. 

Our inclusive culture means we value diversity and a working environment where everyone can thrive and be themselves at work. It’s this breadth of experience and perspective that makes Britain what it is. It’s what will help us sell Britain to the world.

To reflect this, we have a rich variety of networks which include: Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Network, Cross Diversity, and Inclusion Network, DIT Gender Network, Disability Network, EU Nationals Network, Facilitators Network, Mentoring Network, LGBT+ Network, Health and Wellbeing advocates, Social Mobility Network, Generation Network, Social Networks, Parent Group, Faith Group and Neurodiversity Network.

We are also a signatory of the Business in the Community Race at Work Charter, an initiative designed to improve outcomes for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) employees in the UK.

We are an employer of choice with different entry pathways, including apprenticeships and life chances schemes.
