T&F’s very purpose is founded on diversity and inclusion: it is an essential element of curating, substantiating and publishing the experts and truths that matter. We believe that diversity is a strength and that bringing together a diverse range of people, communities and opinions is beneficial to the customers and communities we serve, to our colleagues, and ultimately to humankind. We also believe it is the right thing to do.
We believe that ideas and opinions should be judged objectively based on the evidence and arguments presented. Any ideas that meet our exacting levels of quality deserve to be included in our publications.
Our purpose takes precedence over other values we hold as a company and as individuals. This means we may sometimes publish content that is in conflict with other beliefs, yet it is necessary in our commitment to uphold diversity of thought.
Every day, we publicly demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion through our authors, researchers and corpus. We also demonstrate our commitment through our business policies, processes and practices, such as talent attraction and assessment, editorial board composition, peer review programs, and in the campaigns we create or join to increase accessibility of our content to diverse audiences. T&F have always and will always strenuously uphold the principles within the Informa Code of Conduct and Diversity and Inclusion Global Policy.
We stand for human dignity and tolerance in all its forms. We have no place for racism, discrimination, xenophobia or disrespect of any kind.
We are committed to meaningful actions that progress equal opportunity and broad inclusivity without regard for skin colour, economic circumstance, cultural heritage, faith, political affiliation, gender, age, disability or with whom you choose to share a life.
We have zero tolerance for actions and individuals that breach these principles.
