Our department's new Inclusion Strategy 2021-23 is now available.

Inclusion is important right now to help people realise a sense of teamwork, belonging and safety. Particularly as we adapt to new ways of working during challenging times.

The strategy also highlights work we have been doing to progress an inclusive culture, and shows how we plan to measure our success.
