We have been deeply saddened and outraged by the death of George Floyd. We serve one of the most diverse populations in the country and over half of our staff are from BAME backgrounds; we know many will have been hurt by recent events.
To celebrate our diversity and the staff that bring our organisation to life we have shared just some of their stories. We invite you to read and learn from their accounts, because it is together that we will make the world a kinder and fairer place.
We are committed to eliminating discrimation, valuing diversity and becoming a more inclusive organisation.
