Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

The Royal Irish Academy is committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among our workforce, eliminating unlawful discrimination, and creating an open and inclusive culture where everyone feels valued. The aim is for our workforce to be representative of society and for each employee to feel respected and able to contribute to the best of their ability.

The Academy believes that embracing equality and diversity in the workplace benefits not just the Academy but also individual employees, divisions and our stakeholders. The Academy strives to create an inclusive and supportive environment in which all employees can flourish and reach their full potential, regardless of differences, experience or education. Harnessing the wide range of perspectives this diversity brings, promotes innovation and helps make us more creative and in delivering on our strategic objectives.

Equality and Diversity are not inter-changeable but inter-dependent. There can be no equality of opportunity if difference is not valued and harnessed and taken account of.


The Royal Irish Academy is committed to sustainability and climate action. As a public body the Academy must meet the Public Sector Climate Action Mandate. The Academy is committed to not just meeting but going beyond its obligations. The Royal Irish Academy has also pledged to be a Net Zero greenhouse gas emitting organisation by 2050 along with several sister academies. The Academy strives to take into account best-practice recommendations on climate action from similar contexts and apply these across the organisation. Academy staff receive training on sustainability issues and climate action and are invited to share ideas for initiatives.

The Royal Irish Academy has established a staff Green Team made up of staff members from many departments and grades. The Green Team is a driver of sustainability within the organisation. The Green Team organises staff awareness events, coordinates staff action on climate issues and contributes to the Academy’s reporting.
