Equal opportunities

The British Council is committed to equality of opportunity and inclusion, and employs positive action to promote this. We believe that an Equal Opportunity Policy helps to ensure that there is no unjustified discrimination in the recruitment, retention, training and development of staff on the basis of gender including transgender, marital status (which includes civil partnerships), sexual orientation, religion and belief, political opinion, ethnicity/race, work pattern, age, disability or HIV/AIDS status, socio-economic background, spent convictions, trade union activity or membership, on the basis of having or not having dependents, or any other irrelevant grounds.

Participants’ selection undertaken by workshop organisers must not contravene this policy.  Extra support to enable participation of early career researchers with special needs will be given.
