Civil servants can, but are not compelled, to declare their ethnicity. As a result, we don't hold sufficient information to give an accurate response. The civil service is, however, committed to harnessing the ambition and potential of its staff, whoever they are. In addition to initiatives such as the Summer Diversity Internship Programme, which specifically targets those of minority ethnic or lower socio-economic background, it is a key component of the civil service talent strategy to ensure that all talent development schemes are accessible to all those who show the ability and aspiration to make a difference to the civil service.
