Awarded the best employer for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

15 November 2023

Waltham Forest Council was named as best Employer for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the LGC Workforce Awards. To be a winner in this category is a wonderful achievement and it’s a testament to the progress we are making as an organisation.

I’m incredibly proud of the journey we are on and it’s always wonderful to be recognised for the hard work that is taking place, however, the real benchmark of success is what you tell us about your experiences of working here and what our data tells us about diverse representation in our workforce, at all levels. Please keep telling us about your experience and what we can do better.

Our staff networks proactively support with our diversity and inclusion agenda, and joining a network provides you with an opportunity to have a stronger part to play in improving things for all employees in the Council.
