We aim to promote a culture of diversity, equality and inclusion and make it part of everything we do.

Embracing EDI benefits us all by giving us opportunities for creativity and innovation and encouraging us to think about new ways of doing things. It brings the Houses of the Oireachtas Service more closely in line with Irish society as a whole.
