Diversity and inclusion

We actively support diversity and inclusion and recognise the importance of creating a culture where everyone feels valued for the contribution they make. However, we also recognise that there is still work to do. That’s why inclusion, combined with wellbeing, is a vital part of our engagement strategy.

Our staff inclusion networks are groups made up of colleagues across Cambridge Assessment with a shared purpose. They are run by staff for staff, and their value lies in creating an environment that respects the diversity of the organisation and enables colleagues to derive maximum benefit and enjoyment from working here.

We currently have five networks, which all staff are welcome to join:

  • BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic)
  • Healthy mind
  • LGBT+
  • Parents and carers together
  • Women in leadership

The benefits of networks include:

  • offering a listening ear for employees
  • providing peer support and personal development
  • giving a collective voice on issues
  • assisting career progression
  • building community across geographical boundaries.

We are also developing training for managers on inclusion and diversity, and unconscious bias.

Through these activities we hope to develop our culture of openness, respect and tolerance.
