Equality and Diversity Forum
Energy UK’s Equality and Diversity Forum is a cross-industry committee looking to share experiences from all attendees and external organisations in a bid to drive forward best practice in equality and diversity across the sector. We anticipate that the group will be attended by organisations’ HR teams, internal network leads or equality and diversity leads.
Despite representing 619,000 jobs, five percent of GDP and over two percent of all jobs in the UK the energy industry had fallen behind other equivalent industries in key indices such as the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index. By sharing and embedding differing approaches to progressing equality and diversity policy across the spectrum we hope to rectify this
The first meeting of the Equality and Diversity Forum has taken place on the afternoon of the 21st March, from 14:00 – 16:00 at Energy UK’s London office.
