Our diversity is what makes us stronger, more innovative and more creative. Our wealth of backgrounds, languages, cultures, abilities and ethnicities is the driving force behind our human rights work.

DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND EQUALITY MATTERS

Human rights must be our identity, not only our demand. Amnesty International must always live the values we advocate for others. And we must do this more authentically and visibly, as a resolutely anti-racist and anti-sexist organisation.

Racism and sexism present a clear and present threat to our human rights mandate: to our staff, to our members and to our ability to carry out our work. Whilst there are no easy fixes, we must create and sustain appreciative, and empowering working environments across our movement, in which everyone is able to thrive and feels valued and respected. We must berights, to do rights better.

OUR GLOBAL TEAM

We see an Amnesty International team – members and staff – that is increasingly representative of those whom we serve. We stand alongside them wherever they are; combining our efforts to be more relevant, more influential and have greater impact.

We work from regional offices across Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and in the Middle East and North Africa region to ensure we can respond more quickly, gather stronger evidence and foster closer relations with key partners.

We are looking for people who are passionate about human rights and determined to make an impact on people’s lives. Joining Amnesty means joining a global team dedicated to being a racial and gender-equal, diverse, and inclusive workplace for all – our place as an authoritative voice for human rights depends on us getting this right.
