Equality & Diversity

We have actively increased women and ethnic minority representation in the Labour group, taking the ratio from 19% to 41% for women and 50% for BAME representation.

I spearheaded a wide-ranging fairness commission within the council.


In the light of this we have refreshed our corporate strategy and have refocussed the priorities of the organisation to align with those of the Labour party.


I have introduced a Labour clause in all procurements, ensuring apprentices and local supply chain requirements and London Living wage.
