Inclusivity Panel’s proposed goals approved

Panel sets CIBSE’s 2018 targets

CIBSE Journal October 2016 Inclusivity panel

The CIBSE Board has approved the Inclusivity Panel’s proposed goals for the coming year.

These are: improving awareness and understanding of inclusivity and diversity across CIBSE and embedding these concepts within the Institution’s strategic aims; improving the breadth and quality of data captured about ‘protected characteristics’ from both staff and members; and increasing the proportion of female members and registrants.

These aims have been chosen to give a mix of ‘quick wins’, long-term capacity building and – in the case of the third goal – targeted actions to address a particularly acute issue.

CIBSE is now developing specific actions against each of these aims. The finalised action plans will be submitted to the board for review and approval in January.
