Diversity and inclusion at DE&S
At DE&S, we believe that through true diversity, we can build an inclusive environment where both our employees and our organisation can thrive.
So no matter who you are, where you come from, or how you think, we want to see you be the best that you can be – achieving your aspirations and reaching your full potential.
Our people are supported to really be themselves. This is a place where differences are valued and our employees are treated fairly and with respect. We aim to harness the collective and complementary skills, knowledge and backgrounds of all our people – because it’s your fresh ideas that enable us to make innovative business decisions.
We run a number of diversity networks and initiatives across our organisation to support our inclusive culture. They’re designed to meet the needs of all employees, regardless of age, race, religion, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or any other dimension of diversity.
Our Outreach Programme offers our people personal development opportunities within our local communities, while increasing social mobility in recognition of the benefits that attracting diversity brings to our organisation.
Our networks include:
- Next Generation
- Neuro Inclusivity
- Carers and Parents
- Multi-Cultural Community
