Equality and Diversity

As the largest employer in the borough, we also want a workforce that reflects the diversity of our local community. We are committed to equal opportunities and we were recently awarded Two Ticks Disability Symbol.

As part of our work to promote rights for people who are lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) we are proud to be part of Stonewall's Diversity Champion Programme.

In January 2012, Hackney Council was ranked 80th in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index 2012, making us the top 3rd London Borough.
