EDI Charter published and A Place for All campaign case studies available

New equality, diversity and inclusion charter published

ADEPT is committed to promoting a culture of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) across its membership and beyond and part of this commitment we have published a new charter and set of actions.

As the representative body for local authority place directors, we recognise the inherent value of embracing EDI principles in all aspects of our work. The place sector has traditionally lacked diversity and we understand there is a journey ahead, during which we need to remain realistic but also strive to create real and lasting change.

Local authorities are organisations that represent their places. It is crucial they reflect the diversity of their communities in order to effectively fulfil their responsibilities and deliver the best outcomes for all their residents. You can read our charter here.

A Place for All - joint campaign with Colas

We recently ran an equality, diversity and inclusion campaign, A Place for All, in partnership with Colas, featuring a series of powerful case studies. 

Each story provides genuine insights into each individual’s experience, exploring the challenges they’ve faced at work, how they overcame them and changed their workplaces for the better. We’ve gathered all the case studies together in one publication – please read and share these stories.

We’ve now brought these together into one publication, available here.
