ParliON, is the Workplace Equality Network (WEN) that promotes inclusion and equality of opportunity across Parliament, and works to raise awareness of issues around socio-economic inclusion.
Protection against discrimination based on social-economic status or background is not protected in legislation, so our work across Parliament is vital. There is a growing recognition of the importance of encouraging social mobility as an end to itself and to ensure organisations make the most of the talents of all of their staff. We are helping the administrations of both Houses rise to that challenge.
They are working to:
- raise awareness of issues related to social mobility
- create a supportive and inclusive environment
- promote equality of opportunity for all, whatever their socio-economic background
