We are very proud to be a diverse workplace and one way we can continue this is through the work of our Diversity and Inclusion working groups. Headed up by Charlotte Bennett, Director of Claims System Review, the working groups look at how we support both staff and customers from diverse backgrounds. We have working groups for the areas of age, disability, BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic), gender, LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) and Social Mobility.
The Age Working Group has been established to ensure we are addressing the issues faced by all of our workforce regardless of age.
BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic)
The Admiral BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic) Working Group was established to support the company in becoming a more ethnically diverse and inclusive company by raising awareness, acting as a place for discussion and improving the working environment for our BAME members of staff.
The Disability Working Group was created to improve awareness, discuss ideas and implement adjustments to improve the workplace for our customers and colleagues living with disabilities.
The Gender Working Group has been set up to consider issues and to raise awareness on issues surrounding gender. Our aim is to ensure that we continue to support all our staff and continue to promote our inclusive culture.
The LGBT+ working groups aims to promote a safe, inclusive and diverse working environment, support LGBT+ staff and customers and provide and support a social network which promotes inclusivity and encourages participation from its members.
The Social Mobility workstream aims to highlight any barriers which disadvantages staff from particular social backgrounds, to remove these barriers where possible, and to provide these staff with the tools to fulfil their potential.
