Equal opportunity and diversity
As the UK’s principal cultural relations organisation the British Council is strongly committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. Our work is centered on building meaningful, enduring and respectful relationships across different cultures. We cannot do this if we do not have a commitment to equality, inclusion and valuing diversity.
Our Diversity strategy and Equity policy set out how we approach the challenges of mainstreaming equality, diversity and inclusion internationally. We are very proud of our work in this area and have developed innovative methods and tools to encourage progress and success.
