We’re on a journey
The PSC is committing to new diversity targets that will see it achieve a 50% female consulting staff by 2022, and 25% of its consulting staff from ethnic minorities by 2025
Our mission is to reduce inequalities in the public sector and to make public services that best serve those who need them most. To do that well, we need a workforce that’s more representative of the people we serve.
This is why we’re introducing an accelerated approach to diversity and inclusivity at The PSC. We know this is both the right thing to do, and also that it will benefit our business and our work with clients.
The PSC has already been working hard behind the scenes to remove unconscious bias from our hiring process, but we wanted to create a journey with real milestones to hold ourselves to account. The targets we’ve created are ambitious but achievable and go further than any of our competitors in this area.
Through our new diversity targets, The PSC will seek to achieve:
- By 2022, 50% of our consulting staff will be female
- By 2025, 25% of our consulting staff and 25% of our leadership team from ethnic minorities
- By 2028, 50% of our leadership team will be female
We will bring our commitment to improving D&I to all aspects of our internal and external work, to reduce inequalities in public services.
We believe that these targets can be achieved by removing barriers and thinking more broadly and inclusively. This will be reviewed annually as we're aware that we've only focused on a couple of protected characteristics at this stage.
