Equality & Diversity Statement

Equality and diversity is everyone’s business. Here at Leicestershire County Council, we’ve been building on strong foundations since achieving Excellent status in 2011 under the Equality Framework for Local Government.

We have a corporate Equalities Board, supported by departmental equality groups and also our staff groups for Black, Asian and Multi Ethnic Staff, Disabled Workers, LGBT+ and Carers.

We believe that a strong, diverse workforce will bring together different perspectives and ideas. To find out more, please read the council’s Equality & Diversity statement.
