At GWR we value diversity. We have a strategy that sets out our approach to ensure we broaden our appeal to both our customers and colleagues. Our vision for inclusion and diversity is:
We are progressive. We are one family. We are inclusive. First time, every time.

Making GWR an inclusive place to work is essential for us to deliver a railway that is inclusive for our customers. Valuing our differences such as age, gender, LGBTQ+, ethnicity, religion, and disability, means that our colleagues have a voice and are supported to be their authentic selves at work; where they can share experiences and diversity of thought.
