For USS it’s about valuing everybody as an individual and having a workplace where people are welcomed and feel comfortable in the knowledge that they can be themselves.

To reap the benefits of a diverse workforce, we are working to generate an inclusive environment where each individual feels that they can reach their potential, can participate and can take advantage of all of the opportunities on offer.

We all stand to benefit if we get this right; when we embrace and encourage different views, utilise people’s skills, adapt to new ways of working and learn from the experience that people from all backgrounds and identities bring.
