What is the DDS and who is it for?
The Diversity Development Standard is a diversity accreditation that allows you to verify whether your organisation’s current operating practices are fit for purpose in terms of driving cultural change and following best practice in diversity, inclusion, and wellbeing.
The diversity and inclusion accreditation recognises excellence and can be used as a development tool to drive continuous improvement through its three award levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold), and is externally audited by an independent panel of industry experts.
The DDS focuses on action you can take to achieve a truly diverse workforce, develop inclusive cultures in which everyone can flourish, and support, develop and maintain the wellbeing of staff. In short, it helps your organisation to be the best it can be, as well as demonstrate an ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion.
