Our work is based on building meaningful, enduring and respectful relationships across different cultures. We cannot do this without a strong commitment to equality, inclusion and diversity. This is why we dedicate a full week every year to celebrate the diversity of our staff, programme participants, customers and partners. We are hosting a number of inclusive as well as educational events in the week of 18-22 November 2019 for staff, partners and the wider community to participate in. We hope you will join us in celebrating the value of diversity.

The British Council invites the members of the wider community to participate on all three days of our Diversity Week activities.

Mr. Summer Xia, the British Council Country Director in Azerbaijan, says:

“As the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, our goal is to develop inclusive programmes and projects that bring together people with different experiences, abilities and backgrounds. This is why we dedicate a full week every year to celebrate our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. This year, we are joined by dynamic individuals from the UK and Azerbaijan, who will share their ideas and work to promote and celebrate diversity in our two countries.”
