Diversity and Inclusion

Understanding our values and how we aim to empower people

We believe that education has the power to transform lives for the better. We aim to give people the opportunity to access knowledge, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances.

We can only achieve this if we encourage diversity and inclusion within OUP, and give all of our people the chance to express their individuality at work. By empowering our people to make their mark and achieve their personal aspirations, we better reflect the markets we operate in, and the customers we work with.

We look to inspire change not only within our company, but also within the publishing industry as a whole.

OUP is a partner of the Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC) and abides by their Joint Statement of Principles.
