To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, how many staff in his Department reported their religion as Islam in the latest period for which figures are available; what the reported ethnicity of those staff was; and how many of those staff were employed at each grade.
DExEU is committed to being a diverse and inclusive organisation. We welcome staff from all backgrounds and religions. We are committed to ensuring that staff from all religions find DExEU to be a supportive and inclusive place to work which is evidenced by the work from our Religious Diversity network and Diversity & Inclusion Strategy.
Of these 24 staff, 16 have declared their ethnicity as Asian/Asian British. Fewer than five have declared their ethnicity in any other group.
Of the 24 staff declaring their religion as Islam, the grade breakdown is:
7 B1 (EO Equivalent)
Fewer than five have declared their religion as Islam in any other grade.
These figures are based entirely on staff voluntarily declaring their religion and ethnicity on the Department’s HR systems.
