Equal Opportunities – Inclusion, Diversity and Equality

Our Vision for The Heritage Alliance:

We are committed to being recognised for achieving the highest standards of inclusion, diversity and equality of opportunity in our work and activities.

Our Values:

We treat everyone with respect and uphold a working environment free of bullying, harassment, victimisation and discrimination.

We respect and value the differences of individuals and we encourage and welcome the contributions of everyone involved in our activities.

We know we cannot understand the experiences of others without listening to and learning about their lived experience.

We know that we and our Members and the wider heritage sector have much more to do.

We are committed to:

Improving diversity in our workforce, our governance and in every aspect of our activities.

Developing our understanding, examining our behaviours and challenging biases that prevent us from being truly inclusive.

Reviewing and improving our policies, processes and practices to ensure we match our Vision and Values.

Developing a strategy for inclusion that will improve representation and enable us to implement and sustain authentic, systemic change.

Updating this statement to reflect our practices as they develop and to sharing our learnings and revised approaches with our Members.

“Heritage is for everyone. The work we do ensures that a range of people are able to connect with, enjoy and benefit from the historic environment.” - Historic England
