Driving Forward Diversity in the Police Conference
Wednesday, 14 May 2014
Central London

About the Event:

Our National Driving Forward Diversity in the Police Conference comes amid proposals to introduce ‘direct entry’ schemes aiming to improve diversity across the police service. Ethnic minority officer strength currently stands at 5% and female officers at 27%. With this reducing to 3.8% and 16% respectively at Chief Inspector rank and above,* now is the time to address the issue of diversity in the policing landscape and deliver a step-change in the culture of forces across the country.

Key issues addressed on the day include:

• Developing a robust equality and diversity strategy
• Meeting the operational need through better diversity
• Promoting cultural and behavioural change throughout the organisation
• Innovative initiatives to improve uptake from key groups
• Improving workforce support for female, disabled, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) officers

Designed in consultation with key stakeholders, this event will provide an excellent platform for the policing sector to network and share ideas with colleagues and peers. Gain advice and guidance from sector experts and trailblazing forces to assist you to drive the equality and diversity agenda forward and improve practices in your force.

Expert Speakers Include:

• Chair: Franstine Jones, Diversity Officer, Suffolk Constabulary and President, National Black Police Association

• Keynote: Alfred Hitchcock, Chief Constable, Ministry of Defence and National Policing Lead for Equality Diversity and Human Resources

• Joanna Young, Chief Superintendent, Metropolitan Police and Human Resources Business Area Lead, Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales
