Diversity Equality and Inclusion

HSE Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Statement 

Employees of the HSE bring a range of skills, talents, diverse thinking and experience to the organisation. The HSE is committed to creating a positive working environment whereby all employees inclusive of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical or mental disability, civil status, membership of the Traveller community, and geographic location are respected, valued and can reach their full potential. We aim to develop the workforce of the HSE so that it reflects the diversity of HSE service users and to strengthen it through accommodating and valuing different perspectives, ultimately resulting in improved service-user experience. 

Work in Progress

We are currently reviewing our plans and policies relating to Diversity, Equality and Inclusion in the workplace. A new Framework for Diversity, Equality and Inclusion and new Diversity objectives will be available here soon – please keep checking this page.
