Equality, Diversity and Inclusion objectives: 2023-2028
Information rights are ultimately about people – relationships, trust, equality, democracy and dignity.
At the ICO, we value what makes us unique, to better understand and serve our customers, society and the economy. This means the ICO as a workforce, employer and regulator must be equal, diverse and inclusive. We’re making sure equality, diversity and inclusion is a thread that runs through every aspect of the ICO.
Our EDI objectives cover three areas. They are supported by our EDI action plan. The action plan details what we will deliver, by when, who is responsible for delivery and how we will know we have achieved our objectives.
