The Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion Strategy sets out how we will become the most inclusive employer in the UK by 2020. The strategy builds on the significant advances we have already made.

At its core are our twin priorities:

  • to continue to increase the representation of currently under-represented groups at all levels across the Civil Service
  • to focus on inclusion to build our culture and reputation as a place that attracts, develops, retains and fully engages all the diverse talent across our organisation
