Equality at the RSL

The RSL supports equal opportunities, and the ethos of respect and compassion for each other and the communities we work with runs through everything we do. We believe literature is for everyone, regardless of their ethnicity, gender identity, disability, culture, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age. We value and celebrate diversity and encourage applications from people under-represented in the creative industries, particularly candidates from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, and disabled candidates.
