Our values and behaviours
‘Be Islington’ is about setting a clear challenge about what it means to be an Islington employee and sets the standard for every new recruit. We ask our employees to ‘Be Islington’ – playing their part in working together for a more equal borough and to always be collaborative, be ambitious, be resourceful, and be empowering (‘CARE’).
Our commitment to challenging inequality
We are committed to tackling inequality, racism and injustice and creating a more equal borough for all. In order to do this, we need to set the example by being a fair employer and creating a workplace environment, which is free from discrimination, racism and inequality. Our approach needs to be proactive, consistently learning to create a more equal workplace and foster a culture, which empowers all staff to challenge inequality.
We’ve worked in collaboration with colleagues around the council on the Challenging Inequality Strategy – which sets a framework and a detailed action plan for how we’ll address in the inequalities in our borough. We’re committed to challenging inequality in our workplace, our community and in every corner of society.
