Oxfam is a global community who believe poverty isn’t inevitable. It’s an injustice that can be overcome. We are shop volunteers, women’s right activists, marathon runners, aid workers, coffee farmers, street fundraisers, goat herders, policy experts, campaigners, water engineers and more. And we won’t stop until everyone can live life without poverty for good.

To play our part as a global organisation working to overcome poverty and inequality, we need equality, diversity and inclusion across our community of staff, partners and volunteers. Together, we’re committed to becoming a more diverse workforce, better able to tackle the global challenges that face our world today.

 

To do that:

·        We need to dismantle the unequal power structures that exist everywhere, this including Oxfam and the wider development and charity sectors.

·        We need an inclusive Oxfam where everyone can bring who they are to our work and feels celebrated for the differences they bring.

·        We want and need everyone, and that means we need you.
