The CIPR's Diversity and Inclusion Network seeks to develop an inclusive culture within public relations by raising general awareness of diversity issues and increasing numbers of public relations practitioners from all backgrounds.
The Diversity and Inclusion Network's remit is broad. 'Diversity' is an all-encompassing term acknowledging differences such as gender, ethnicity, sexuality, socio-economic background, disability, religion/faith and age. The Forum believe public relations campaigns are more effective when created and delivered by teams that are representative of the audiences they seek to engage. There are both strong moral and business cases for diversity in public relations.
The CIPR is a proud supporter of the Taylor Bennett Foundation.
You can keep in touch with the group via Twitter and Facebook.
