  • Status: Statement published
  • End: 23 February 2018

Statement published 29 March 2018

Ofcom’s Diversity and Inclusion Programme explains how diversity and equality are essential to how we operate, both as an employer and as the UK’s communications regulator.

It sets out our objectives and actions for 2018-2022.

These are to:

  • build a diverse and inclusive workforce to better reflect the UK population we serve;
  • ensure diversity and inclusion are central to our work practices and culture so everyone understands, supports and is accountable for diversity; and
  • ensure the different needs and interests of all individuals are considered when carrying out our regulatory work.

We held a public consultation on our plans between 23 January and 23 February 2018 to allow people to comment on them and respond to us. This statement includes an annex setting out how we have taken account of consultation responses.

A Braille copy of this statement is available on request and we welcome requests for formats other than print, for example an audio recording or a British Sign Language video.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Programme addresses our duties under the Communications Act 2003 to further the interests of consumers, as well as duties under equality legislation including as an employer. We are also required to publish our equality objectives.
