Diversity, Equality and Inclusion
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion sit at the heart of our values and are essential to a thriving and resilient cultural sector.
We know that leadership skills quite often develop through different lived experiences and alternative career pathways and we are committed to reflecting, respecting and recruiting a diverse cohort of Fellows and doing our best to ensure that their learning needs and access requirements are met.
Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people, as well as disabled people are currently heavily underrepresented in leadership roles in the cultural sector in the UK. We welcome and encourage BAME and disabled candidates to apply for the Fellowships. In compliance with the Equality Act, we offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants who meet all the essential criteria and who are applying to be a Clore Fellow for the first time.
Additionally, we work hard to reflect the ambition within Arts Council England’s Creative Case for Diversity. We support and have partnered with the BBC to help them deliver their Diversity and Inclusion Strategy. We produce data on the diversity of our applicants which is available on request.
