Answer for Making GLA Staff More Representative of London's Population

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am committed to making the GLA (and the GLA group) representative of London at all levels. I recognise that there are challenges in delivering this across the GLA group and the current position needs significant improvement.

I am already working to ensure my directly appointed team and my board appointments reflect London's diversity.

I will be working with the Head of Paid Service in the GLA and senior managers in the functional bodies to hold them to account for delivering my commitment on this.
