Diversity and Inclusion


We exist in a global, multicultural world and we want CIPA to reflect that. The Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Committee was formed in early 2021 following a resolution of Council and held its inaugural meeting on 28 June.

The Committee made steady progress throughout its initial months, including laying plans to survey the membership to generate D&I data in order to identify areas for improvement.

Chair Greg Iceton said:

We are making efforts to raise awareness of equality, diversity and inclusivity to our members. We will work together with other associations (e.g. IP Inclusive) to ensure that we are not duplicating the efforts of others. We encourage people in all roles in the profession to join our Committee to ensure that we have a solid representation at all levels.

As the year closed the Committee was preparing content for a special D&I edition of the CIPA Journal, to be edited by Greg and featuring articles to raise awareness of the need for new policies and action, such as the business case for D&I. Please contact [email protected] for more details.
