2015 EiDA Nominee – Greater Manchester Police

Greater Manchester Police has shown outstanding contribution to harnessing diversity within their workforce, actively taking the lead to highlight the business case for inclusion within the police service. In recent years, Greater Manchester Police have taken robust measures to increase the diversity of their workforce, successfully doing so in the process. The force has resourced a new operation, ‘Operation Peel’ to increase the diversity of staff recruitment, and to tackle issues internally last year GMP established a Hate Incident Governance Group to have organisational oversight of all hate cases involving discrimination within their police force. Having such a group enables GMP to have an understanding of the volume of cases and the type of issues staff experience when concerned about fairness. GMP have seen astonishing results from initiatives that they have implemented in response to their employees needs and diversity related issues, and continue to make improvements across many areas internally and externally.
