Equality and diversity

As a public body, we publish regular information about what our equality and diversity objectives are and how we're meeting them.

Equality and diversity objectives

Our equality and diversity objectives are to:

  • treat all colleagues and customers with dignity and respect
  • make the best use of the experience and talent in our current and potential workforce
  • build a culture that encourages dialogue
  • prevent discrimination on the basis of age, disability, gender, sex, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation

We have a business case (MS Word Document, 974 KB) for diversity and equality within The Insolvency Service, which aims to articulate the costs and benefits of our commitment to diversity and equality.
