CIPR SCOTLAND LAUNCHES THE SCOTTISH PR INDUSTRY’S FIRST DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION ADVISORY GROUP

CIPR Scotland is launching the Scottish PR industry’s first-ever Diversity, Equity and Inclusion advisory group to bring together diverse voices who are passionate about improving diversity and championing inclusion..

It will engage with diverse groups across our membership to ensure their views and opinions are heard and acted upon by the CIPR Scotland. It aims to provide insight to help us improve diversity and inclusion in the Scottish communications industry. Initially, the group will explore critical issues including ethnic and gender inequality, and inclusive communications. Anyone interested in getting involved should contact the CIPR Scotland on CIPRScotland@gmail.com

The new programme builds on the CIPR Scotland’s high-profile work to support diversity in the communications industry – including a 2018 partnership to close the gender gap, 2020 Race in PR awareness programme, and most recently our 2021 Women’s History Month leadership event series..
