Gender findings in DCS update 2022

Commenting on the findings on gender in the DCS update 2022, Steve Crocker, ADCS President said:

“The latest DCS update 2022 shows that we currently have the highest number of female directors of children’s services in post since ADCS started collecting this information in 2007. The DCS community is now much more diverse in terms of gender compared to other domains of diversity and reflects the good succession planning that has been put in place by many councils. However, we are clear that there are not yet enough Black and ethnic minority directors across the county which is why improving ethnic diversity continues to be a focus for us as an Association as it is for all local authorities. We want all our staff, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity or any disability, to know they can progress to senior and leadership roles if they want to. Diversity matters, in all its forms; we want the children we work with to see themselves reflected in our workforce, and to know they too can aspire to a future career in children’s services.”
