Equality, diversity and inclusion statement
JNCC is committed to fostering an environment where everyone feels valued and respected. JNCC has a responsibility to ensure that we have an inclusive culture where discrimination, harassment, bullying and prejudice will not be tolerated. By enabling a diverse range of people to thrive and give their best JNCC will ultimately be more successful in achieving its ambitions for nature conservation.
As Chief Executive, I am determined that JNCC will continue to improve its approach towards equality, diversity and inclusion. This year, JNCC has committed to action in three priority areas, all of which demonstrate our commitment to the Equality Act 2010.
Recruitment and selection
Our recruitment and selection process is determined on merit and on the basis of fair and open competition regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership.
We welcome and encourage applications from everyone, and we commit to ensuring our recruitment methods are effective in recruiting a diverse workforce.
In our work with community science groups, we will encourage equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives among our volunteer networks and partnerships.
Training and awareness
We are committed to improving awareness of equality, diversity and inclusion in JNCC through training opportunities and sharing best practice.
