We are committed to broadening the diversity of people we employ so that our workforce is more representative of all sections of society, at all levels of the organisation.
We are building an inclusive culture, where different perspectives are seen as an asset and nobody is made to feel like they don’t belong.
By driving different, creative and fresh ways of thinking, diversity – in an inclusive environment – will help us work better together.
Diversity means all the visible and non-visible ways in which we differ. This includes the categories protected by UK law(opens in a new tab) (age, disability, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation), as well as socio-economic background and ways of thinking.
Inclusion means ensuring that everyone is welcomed, respected and valued. We want to understand the different experiences people have because of their identities and ensure that everyone is treated equitably.

We have a number of staff-led networks which actively promote diversity and inclusion at Wellcome and ensure that our policies and practices reflect the lived experience of staff.
