At Alzheimer’s Research UK, we value Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are directly related to our vision of a world free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia, where research breakthroughs will benefit everybody with a dementia diagnosis.
We are committed to being an inclusive organisation where people can make a full contribution and a diverse range of views is valued. We pride ourselves on being a flexible employer and support our employees to develop their skills, knowledge and experience.
Alzheimer’s Research UK’s four Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commitments guide our approach:
- We will find ways to improve inclusion in research
- We will ensure our work is representative of those we support
- We will improve the diversity and inclusion of our workforce
- We will listen to our employees and act on what they tell us
Our commitments ensure we are always listening, reviewing and improving our practice. Action planning to develop our EDI approach will be a particular emphasis in 2021, and we will update our progress here.
Alzheimer's Research UK is proud to endorse the ALBA Declaration on Equity and Inclusion. By signing this declaration, we aim to promote a more inclusive brain research culture for all.
We have also signed the Time to Change Pledge which demonstrates our commitment to changing the way we think and act about mental health in the workplace.
