Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

The Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC) is dedicated to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion by promoting a culture that actively values difference and recognises that people from different backgrounds and experiences bring valuable insights to the workplace and enhance the way we work.

The CEC is fully committed to the elimination of unlawful and unfair discrimination, and we seek to develop a work environment where we treat all employees as individuals, in a fair and consistent way. We work within the spirit and practice of the Equality Act 2010 by promoting a culture of respect and dignity, actively challenging discrimination, should it ever arise. We will remove unnecessary barriers for our employees seeking opportunities through training and  development, promotion, and career planning.

The CEC will not discriminate because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. It will not discriminate because of any other irrelevant factor and will build a culture that values meritocracy, openness, fairness and transparency.

We will continue to support our leaders, managers, and employees to demonstrate the principles of diversity and inclusion in their everyday activities, roles, and functions. Individuals with different cultures, perspectives and experiences are at the heart of the way CEC works. All employees are responsible for the promotion and advancement of this policy.
