We enable organisations to apply for a Charter Mark which will recognise their commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, initially focussing on Gender Diversity.

The Charter follows a methodology of self-assessment and it prioritises continuous progression with goals set by and appropriate to each individual organisation.

Widespread adoption of the Charter Mark will make a genuine difference to diversity & workplace culture on a cross-sectorial basis and will help make the most of Northern Ireland’s talented workforce in a global competitive economy.
