Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI)
We believe that EDI should be at the heart of everything we do. We are passionate that everyone should have fair and equal access to services and opportunities so that they can play a positive role in their community. We are committed to making sure our policies reflect the diverse communities we serve.
Our promise to you
As one of the largest employers in the city we will:
- work towards employing a workforce which is representative of the communities we serve
- treat everyone fairly and with respect
- make sure that the money we spend is used to support and encourage equality of opportunity and good community relations
- champion equality of opportunity and challenge all forms of discrimination
How we ensure equality, diversity and inclusion at Wolverhampton Homes
We have three main groups, comprised of staff, customers, and Board members and representatives of the council, who make it their mission to ensure Wolverhampton Homes is as diverse and as inclusive as possible. Learn more below.
Equality and Diversity Steering Group (EDSG)
EDSG oversees how we deliver services and monitors the impact of these services on our diverse communities.
We need you to help shape our services and make sure they work for everyone. Would you like to get involved in the decision-making process?
Equality Circle Forum (ECF)
ECF provides critical advice, guidance, and support to managers to ensure all new policies, procedures and functions do not inadvertently disadvantage any sections of the community.
ECF is always looking for new members.
We have a staff network dedicated to creating an inclusive workforce where people can perform better because they can be themselves. This network is made up of passionate staff volunteers - they are our Equality Champions.
Our Equality Champions staff network is divided into four sub-groups, so that we can ensure issues across all equality strands are given fair and equal consideration. The four groups are:
- race, religion and belief
- disability and mental health
- age and gender
- Equality in employment
