Diversity in the FCO
Diversity is a central part of our work as a global organisation. This section will help you understand how and why it plays a major role in what we do as an employer, service provider and policy leader.
We welcome your views, comments and suggestions on these pages, as well as, how we can further promote diversity and equality at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).
"To be a world leader in embracing and harnessing difference; creating equality of opportunity; and eliminating discrimination."
We have a range of policies and structures which help shape and support our goals on diversity.
We have a number of senior staff who act as diversity champions and our diversity strategy unit sets out the overall strategy in the FCO.
Staff networking groups within the FCO play a major role in promoting diversity within the workplace and beyond.
All our staff receive diversity training to help understand the legal requirements and the positive impact of valuing diversity at work.
