About

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity

Diversity includes the full spectrum of human difference and is about ensuring organisations are representative of the communities they serve.

Equity

Equity is about providing individuals with fair access to opportunities and resources by meeting their needs and counteracting systemic barriers.

Inclusion

Inclusion is the feeling of belonging within the workplace, creating a culture where individuals feel valued, respected and encouraged to fully participate.

Our Ada Community

To build the diverse, equitable and inclusive workforces of the future, we believe there are three key areas we must focus on: Female learners, learners from low-income backgrounds and learners from an ethnic minority background.

Our Vision

Transform more lives by quadrupling annual intakes of new diverse learners. Our target is for: 

  • 50% of learners to be female
  • 50% of learners to be from an ethnic minority background
  • 50% of learners to be from a low income background
