Equality and diversity
We acknowledge that structural racism and all forms of discrimination have had an enormous impact across our society and that there is much that needs to be done to ensure our art therapy community is truly representative of our wider community.
As part of our commitment to creating a more diverse and inclusive culture, we are committed to taking action. In 2022, we developed and adopted an Equality Equity Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Policy.
Aside from this, we are signed up to be Disability Confident committed employer and we are members of The Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion that brings together organisations with a shared mission to improve diversity within the counselling, psychotherapy and psychological therapy professions.
As part of our work with the International Journal of Art Therapy, we have created Actions for change to diversify the journal and address issues of racism, and inequality.
