We are proud to announce that we have achieved the National Equality Standard – the UK's highest benchmark for equality, diversity and inclusion. The NES acknowledged our Diversity & Inclusion Working Group's hard work as "some of the best (results) we have ever witnessed."
This achievement followed an in-depth assessment by EY which provided us with a comprehensive review of our D&I policies and practices as well as recommendations for improvement. Seven areas were assessed: core components, talent, business, people, leadership, relationships and review and measurement.
We are conscious that this is an important journey and involves ongoing commitment and collaboration on our part – and within our industry as a whole – and we remain committed to creating an equal, diverse and inclusive Derwent London.
