Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Welcome to our 'Living our Values' hub. Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) go to the heart of STEP’s values of community, collaboration, integrity and continuous learning. In January 2022, we published our EDI Guiding Principles, which set out a framework for everyone acting for and on behalf of STEP. The aim is to create an environment where everyone, regardless of background or personal circumstance, feels valued and included.

In line with this, we have developed a series of guides setting out eight inclusive behaviours. For each behaviour you can read the PDF guide and/or watch the video. By engaging with these guides and adopting these behaviours, you will help maintain a culture that allows each person, whatever their involvement with STEP, to thrive and contribute to their full potential.
