This strategy sets out how the NAO will achieve a more diverse and inclusive workforce and ensure that our work helps improve diversity and inclusion across the public sector, and reports on our diversity progress so far.


Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2015-2018 explains the three pillars of our approach to diversity and inclusion:

  • Talent pipeline: building greater diversity at all levels up to and including senior leadership
  • Inclusive work environment: creating a barrier-free NAO in which all employees feel engaged, respected, fairly treated and able to pursue a rewarding career at the NAO.
  • Diversity in our delivery: integrating diversity into all of our work to help improve the public sector’s diversity and inclusion performance.

It outlines our progress in improving our diversity and inclusion since our first diversity strategy in 2000.
