Diversity and inclusion
Marie Curie is committed to being a diverse and inclusive charity that is accessible to all. We are working to do this in a number of important ways.
We are creating diversity and inclusion plans to deliver equality of access, quality of care and outcomes to diverse communities.
We will also be monitoring who is using our services and gathering feedback on how terminally ill people, families and carers experience our care so that we can measure the effectiveness of our diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Through this work we will ensure that everyone we support, regardless of their personal characteristics or condition, receives an equitable service in an environment that is free from discrimination of any kind.
Diversity in the workplace
We recognise that a diverse workforce allows us to provide the best care for people living with a terminal illness. We will show respect for all our employees and volunteers, valuing each individual's contribution, regardless of their age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, civil partnership status, disability, nationality, race, religion or belief. We are committed to providing equal opportunities for all employees and volunteers.
We value and consider the talents and skills available in the community when employment and volunteering opportunities arise, and ensure those employment opportunities are available to all. As a result, our workforce will be a reflection of the population we serve.
We work continuously to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to make our information accessible, that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions on recruitment, selection, training and career development are based on clear, objective criteria.
