Diversity in Defra

Defra’s challenge is to demonstrate improvements in diversity as well as realistically manage these expectations. We recognise that these challenges will not be a quick fix. The business case for workplace diversity is a long-term investment.

At Defra, we have a responsibility to ensure that we have an inclusive culture where discrimination, harassment, bullying and prejudice will not be tolerated. We recognise that all employees have a responsibility to treat each other fairly and with respect, no matter what their ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, religious beliefs and working patterns.

We all have a part in contributing to an inclusive society. A diverse workforce means we are better informed to meet the needs of the citizen. This will make a real difference to both the citizens that we serve and our employees.
