Welcome to Corps Together

It is an absolute pleasure to welcome you to our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (ED&I) Website.  As we approach our very first year, since the successful launch of Corps Together on October 1st, 2020.

Corps Together is run for, and by, Colleagues & Guardians. We are inspired by the voices of the colleagues, more specifically, of the multitude of voices that are contained within our sites and teams.

Write poetry? Together is for you! Have a hot take on a current issue? Together! Interesting faith journey? Together! Whatever it may be, we hope you find your creative (or serious) niche with us.

Corps Together Guardians

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Guardians

Hopefully, you have seen all of our recent communication about our newly launched equality, diversity, and inclusion project ‘Corps Together’, which aims to unite all Corps colleagues to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

To help us drive this initiative and achieve our objectives, a group of passionate individuals have volunteered to become special ‘Guardians’.

Equality law within the UK protects us from discrimination on the basis of a number of ‘protected characteristics’, these include age, gender, race, disability, sexuality and religious beliefs. Corps Guardians will be focusing on these particular areas, taking personal responsibility for individual characteristics and how we can work with our colleagues to make Corps a better place to work.

Please click on any of the photos below to find out more about our Guardians and what they hope to contribute as part of Corps Together.
