Political and professional leadership

The visible value that our professional and political leaders place upon equality, diversity and inclusion matters.

Aims and objectives

The visible value that our professional and political leaders place upon equality, diversity and inclusion affects our ability to deliver a workforce that reflects London, and a culture that encourages merit and ambition over unconscious bias or discrimination.

We will:

  • Seek regular opportunities for political and professional leaders to promote the brigade as an equal opportunities employer.

  • Provide regular forums for support groups to speak directly to professional and political leaders about their experiences.

  • Encourage all senior managers and political leaders to visit fire stations and engage with staff about the culture and environment they create and work in.

  • Ensure managers set professional standards by ensuring that they are, and feel, supported when taking formal or informal action against bullying and harassment.

  • Provide regular, transparent information to support scrutiny of our performance.
