Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Diversity brings innovation, fresh ideas and creativity, and we actively strive to create a culture that is truly inclusive and fair for all and where everyone can be themselves and thrive.

The strength of Mahdlo comes from the diversity of the people within our charity. We are striving to build an organisation that reflects the community we serve. We value people working together from a range of different backgrounds and with different experiences, all with a shared passion for raising the aspirations of young people from across Oldham.

We recognise that we are on a journey to create a diverse and inclusive culture that truly reflects our values and the vibrancy of Oldham’s communities. We are committed to:

  • Promote a culture of diversity and inclusion
  • Develop and nurture our employees, making the most of individuals’ unique backgrounds and experiences
  • Operate within the principles of fairness, respect, quality, integrity, and empathy for colleagues, and all stakeholders in our charity
