Like nature, our survival depends on diversity.
Nature has no borders and neither do we. We recognise that everyone is individual and different and value what that difference brings to the RSPB. We want to support everyone to unlock their potential and better reflect the communities in which we work.
Where we are now
We have gender balance and a good representation of disabled volunteers within our workforce. We have made significant progress against our aim to have an improved gender balance at senior levels.
We do however acknowledge that we have more to do in other areas, particularly in representing the ethnic and racial diversity of the UK and we are keen to encourage more applications from people from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, and younger people who are currently underrepresented as RSPB volunteers and employees, and disabled people who are currently underrepresented as RSPB employees. All applications to the RSPB will be judged solely on merit.
Where we are going
We want the RSPB to be a diverse organisation and a leader in its field and having Equality, Diversity and Inclusion as a top priority, fully integrated and institutionalised in our culture, is a way to future proof the RSPB and help us achieve our mission of saving nature.
We are on a journey but believe that together we can change!
