What is the Diversity Development Standard? And who is it for?
The Diversity Development Standard is an externally audited accreditation for employers looking for verification that their current practices are fit for purpose in driving cultural change. It recognises excellence by providing a benchmark of best practice in diversity, inclusion and wellbeing, and can be used as a development tool to drive continuous improvement through its three award levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold).
The Standard focuses on action you can take in order to achieve a truly diverse workforce, develop inclusive cultures in which everyone can flourish, support, develop and maintain the wellbeing of staff. In short, it helps employers be the best they can be and to demonstrate that this work is ongoing.
