We value all our staff highly. That's why we're committed to providing a positive environment that recognises and values individual differences - be it in age, disability, gender, gender identity, marital or parental status, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or work style.
We seek to create an inclusive culture. We also set standards which go beyond compliance with legislation, and create a more diverse workforce.
NCA Diversity Groups
NCA's diversity groups provide staff in under-represented groups with the opportunity to meet, share ideas and raise concerns about issues that affect them. We talk to our diversity groups about all important aspects of working life and consult them on proposed changes.
The NCA diversity groups are:
- Disability Network Advisory Group (DNAG): DNAG provides information and advice on a range of disability issues to all staff. They work with the occupational health and welfare department, Business Disability Forum and MIND.
- Ethnic Minority Network Support Association (EMNSA): EMNSA resolves workplace issues about ethnicity, race, colour or nationality, religion or belief. They work with Race for Opportunity, National Black Police Association, and Religious Belief Forum.
- Gender Group (GG): GG promotes gender and transgender issues in the workforce, working with Opportunity Now, British Association of Women Policing (BAWP), and the National Trans Police Association.
- Sexual Orientation Network Resource Group (SONAR): SONAR provides advice on sexual orientation issues (in and outside the workplace), be they lesbian, gay, bisexual (LGB) or heterosexual issues. They work with Stonewall, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays and Broken.
- Flexible Working Group (FWG): FWG promotes a balanced work and personal life. This includes alternative and flexible working patterns, and caring responsibilities. They work with the Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion.
