Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) is committed to making the organisation a fair and inclusive place to work. It envisions itself as a future leader in equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the Irish public sector. It believes in the premise of these concepts and intends to place EDI at the heart of all that they do. In this way:

  • The FSAI and its staff will treat people equally and respectfully.
  • To be equitable and fair, the FSAI will work to attract and develop a diverse workforce and ensure that individuals feel valued in their workplace.
  • To be inclusive, the FSAI will seek out and learn from multiple perspectives.

The cornerstones of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) give expression to the FSAI values of ‘integrity, respect, passion, transparency, teamwork and collaboration’. The FSAI is actively working on developing a number of themes to improve inclusivity, diversity and equality/equity within the FSAI. The themes are Inclusive leadership, Diversity data, Recruitment and selection, Training and professional development, Structure and Culture. This is based on wider government’s EDI Our Public Service 2020 Promote Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Plan and recent assessments which have been undertaken by the FSAI in this area.
