Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, to us, means fair treatment and equal opportunities. We do not tolerate discrimination. We try to make sure that all our staff have equal opportunities for progression in their careers. We also try to make sure there are no unnecessary barriers in our recruitment process. Dudley Integrated Health and Care NHS Trust is committed to promoting equality of opportunity; celebrating and valuing diversity; eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation, including cyber or e-bullying and harassment; and promoting good relations.We are committed to achieving equality for all by reducing discrimination in employment and service delivery on the grounds of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation or socio-economic background.

“Everyone is different and unless employers take diversity seriously they will fail to recruit, retain and engage the commitment of the talent needed to sustain and improve performance.”
