Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Workshop

To deliver our vision to be the most inclusive employer in the UK, Civil Service HR are developing a new strategy for Diversity and Inclusion for the Civil Service.  We will be holding a two hour workshop, which will offer an opportunity to get involved in developing a cross-government policy.

The policy will affect everyone who is a member of the Civil Service, and it is essential that it is developed by our people as well as experts. This is a great opportunity for those who want to make a real difference in their departments. The session will help people understand the key priorities for diversity and inclusion in the Civil Service, and consider ways to implement these in their departments.

It is an exciting time to be involved as Diversity and Inclusion remains one of the Civil Service's top priorities as set out by Sir Jeremy Heywood.

When:                  Tuesday 11 April, 13:30 to 15:30

Where:                 Jefferson House, 27 Park Place, Leeds, LS1 2SZ

Places for the workshop are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you would like to attend, please email Kelly Roush.

    It would be good if these events could be more centrally located so that more people could attend.

      Chris, not sure what you mean by centrally? One of our principle aims is to make our services readily accessible around the country, and to cater for local demands and needs. hence we are working in many major cities around England, some areas of Wales and have plans to support similar services in Scotland. As more and more Civil Servants move into hubs this will become less dependent on transport links. If you mean London, the majority of Civil Servants are outside London and whilst transport links are good obtaining accommodation is not easy. This particular workshop is new and we hope will be repeated in a couple of locations so keep an eye on this blog.

    I would be interested in attending this, but it's during the Easter Holidays and I have "child care" stuff to do. Will there be a second workshop?

      Phil, I'm sorry to hear that you can't make it to the Leeds event due to holidays and child care. The team that is running the events have limited resources which combined with the challenges of finding accommodation means that we are only able to organise one of these events in each region.

      There are limited spaces and these are first being offered to people registered in our CS Local Diversity Networks#. It may be possible for you to attend an alternative venue (Bristol 27/3, Blackpool 04/04, Cambridge and Nottingham to be confirmed).

      I will ask to see if there are any alternative ways you can contribute to the strategy.

      #This added retrospectively when I asked other regions.
