The Diversity Mark accreditation is the ‘Mark of Progress’ that allows an organisation to demonstrate to employees and others your commitment to creating an inclusive & diverse workplace through accreditation, insights, best practice and peer support.
AOP have been awarded the Bronze award which is the first stage and it recognises commitment to advancing Gender Diversity.
We have set 3 Diversity Targets:
- Develop an Equality, diversity & Inclusion strategy
- Increase the number of female researchers
- Increase female representation on the AOP Management Committee
Everyone’s journey begins with Bronze and this accreditation recognises commitment to advancing Gender Diversity. As a business progresses, you can achieve the Silver and Gold accreditations. Organisations must submit annual progress reports with a full assessment each year.
