We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone can thrive and contribute their unique perspectives. 

Our commitment to you

Diversity and Inclusion lie at the heart of the CMA, shaping our values and cultivating a culture that thrives on respect and inclusion.

These principles are deeply ingrained in the fabric of our organisation, guiding our teams to work collaboratively within an environment that values every individual's unique perspectives and contributions.

Recognising the importance of constant growth, we’re dedicated to advancing diversity and inclusion through annual action plans, ensuring that we consistently evolve and enhance our practices.

Our inspiring staff networks

At the CMA, we actively foster an inclusive environment by empowering our staff networks to support and amplify the voices of colleagues and their views including Carers, Race, Disability, Women's, Social Mobility, LGBTQ+, Dyslexia, Interfaith, and All Ages.

These networks provide a vital platform for individuals to connect, share experiences, and advocate for meaningful change. Holding our senior leaders accountable, we place a strong emphasis on their responsibility to champion effective diversity and inclusion initiatives throughout the organisation.

Ensuring every voice is heard

We believe that diverse perspectives are instrumental in making informed decisions. To ensure a wide range of voices are heard, we actively seek contributions from our diverse staff on matters of significance. Through platforms such as our advisory committee, staff forum, and trade union representatives, we create avenues for meaningful engagement and collaboration.
