Judicial Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2020/25
The Judicial Diversity and Inclusion Strategy was published in November 2020. It sets out the ambition, aim and objectives for the judiciary over the next 5 years.
The intention is that setting these objectives, and undertaking the actions contained within each of them, will lead to a meaningful positive change to the representation of underrepresented groups within the judiciary.
The strategy has 4 core objectives:
- Creating an environment in which there is greater responsibility for and reporting on progress in achieving diversity and inclusion
- Supporting and building a more inclusive and respectful culture and working environment within the judiciary
- Supporting and developing the career potential of existing judges
- Supporting greater understanding of judicial roles and achieving greater diversity in the pool of applicants for judicial roles
The Judicial Diversity and Inclusion Strategy sets the judiciary’s ambitions for achieving better diversity, inclusion and equality over the next 5 years. It applies to all court and tribunal judges, non-legal members of tribunals and magistrates.
