Diversity UK is a think tank to research, advocate and promote new ideas for improving diversity and inclusion in Britain. It is a not-for-profit, collaborative organisation that works with a wide range of partners, bodies and key opinion formers to engage in a healthy debate about issues of age, race, gender, sexual orientation and disability discrimination. Diversity UK is an evidence-based initiative that seeks to influence policy, enhance civic engagement and improve the perception of the minority ethnic community in Britain. Diversity UK was co-founded by three Trustees and is guided by its Advisory Board.
Diversity UK will deliver its objectives by initially focusing on three areas:
Public Appointments Research & Monitoring
Diversity UK will undertake ongoing quantitative market research on individuals’ experiences of applying for a public appointment and the outcomes.
Publications & Research
Diversity UK will research and publish other reports of interest, for example, the Top 100 Asian Stars in UK Tech list which showcases the impact of Asians on Britain's digital and technology sectors.
Roundtable & Networking Events
Diversity UK exists to support networking amongst diverse groups of individuals and will host roundtable and networking events for members. In 2016, we initiated the annual Paul Stephenson Lecture.
