We currently collect data on sexual orientation and religion for new recruits and therefore the data only covers a very small proportion of staff. The MOJ is exploring ways in which we can extend this data collection to existing employees in line with the Cabinet Office Promoting Equality, Valuing Diversity.
This is the first set of figures provided for the new Department, which shows good progress towards reflecting the society we serve. The data gathered will be used as a benchmark to assess and measure our continual progress.
The MOJ fully recognises the business case for diversity and is strongly committed to improving the diversity of its people resource. To that end we have in place initiatives designed to help us recruit, develop and retain talented and diverse staff.
