It is our aim to make diversity and inclusion a key differentiator of our Games, celebrating the many differences among the cultures and communities of the United Kingdom.
It's not simply about recruiting a diverse workforce. It's about the suppliers, the competitors, the officials and the spectators – in fact, everyone connected with the Games, from the security guards to the bus drivers. Diversity and inclusion influence every detail of our Games-time planning, from accessible transport to our Food Vision.
We're taking a strategic approach to ensure that we can make the most impact in a relatively short period of time. We work closely with key stakeholders and partners to understand their perspectives, issues and concerns, to inform and shape our diversity and inclusion strategy.
This is how LOCOG will deliver a truly memorable, welcoming and inclusive 2012 Games – everyone's Games.
