ARCHIVE: Diversity membership and staff networks in Defra
Defra is proud to be a member of a number of organisations which encourage an inclusive culture for all. Membership of the following organisations provides access to an excellent resource which helps us develop our diversity strategies with concrete actions:
- Race for Opportunity
- Opportunity Now
- Stonewall (Top 100 employer 2009)
- Employers Forum on Disability
Defra has several staff networks that contribute towards and deliver against Defra’s Diversity Strategy. These networks are listed below.
- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T)
- Disability (DisNet)
- Ethnic minority
- Work-life balance
They are formally supported by the Diversity team and have the support from Helen Ghosh, our Permanent Secretary and Defra’s Diversity Champion.
