Equality and Diversity

At Spectrum, we strongly believe that all our employees should be treated fairly and equally, regardless of individual differences.

We aim to shape all our practices to ensure that our organisation is free from discrimination, harassment, and victimisation.

We celebrate diversity by understanding differences; Spectrum Race Equality Network (SREN) represents the interests of our ethnic minority staff to ensure colleagues are not disadvantaged by policies or procedures. Founded in 2021, the network looks at a range of race inequality issues in the workplace, in order to co-create solutions and approaches to tackle them.

"I joined SREN to be able to discuss any issues faced at work, with people of similar backgrounds who'd understand or have faced similar problems. I also joined to support and prevent any other people from facing the same issues. Networks can help support staff by offering a safe, confidential space to discuss problems and give advice on how to tackle them".

Our new Spectrum Lived Experience Network (SLEN) brings together staff with experience of any social issues or factors – including mental ill health, substance misuse, trauma, caring duties, the care system or justice system. This network, created at the start of 2023, builds on Spectrum’s ambition to become a lived experience inclusive employer, supporting our current and future workforce, and recognising the value of lived experience.

I joined SLEN as I feel it is important that staff have the opportunity to share their voice as an individual, or collectively for all staff. Networks support the creation of a fairer and diverse workplace for everyone, which in turn supports Spectrum as an organisation. I personally also feel they support my own wellbeing and mental health!
