Equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of Chwarae Teg’s mission and values.

At Chwarae Teg, we recognise that we have a unique opportunity to effect the positive change needed within society to better protect and enable women and communities to fulfil their potential. As an organisation who exist to eradicate gender inequality in Wales, equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of Chwarae Teg. A Wales where all women, regardless of their background, can achieve and prosper in the economy and beyond is our ultimate goal.

Each week, our teams work across Wales with passion to deliver innovative solutions that contribute to changing the ways in which our society works to better benefit women. From directly supporting and developing women at all levels in the economy, to working with businesses to help implement inclusive working practices or influencing high-level policy change to improve gender equality, we are proud of the impact that we deliver for women in Wales.

However, we also acknowledge that there have been times that we have fallen short in the past and, whilst our intentions to improve diversity and inclusion may have been positive, our approaches haven’t hit the mark. In order to reach our own maximum potential as an organisation, we need to foster the same principles within our own working practices and culture that we use to shape those of the businesses, communities and individuals that we serve. We have a responsibility to embrace and embed best practice in all that we do to truly deliver a service which values the importance of intersectionality alongside the lived experiences of women from a range of backgrounds.

It’s an exciting time for Chwarae Teg as we enter a new period of change, development and growth for the organisation. Over the upcoming years, we may look and deliver work slightly differently to how we do in the present moment, so this is the perfect opportunity to refresh, update and alter our current approach to achieving our goal of working towards a Wales where all women can fulfil their potential.

Change does take time, but we are impatient for it. We are proud of the changes we have already made in recent years. We’re beginning this journey with an ambitious mindset, but we never shy away from the challenge because our vision is for a Wales where all women can fulfil their potential, no matter their background or circumstances. We hope you will come on that journey with us...
