Equalities and Diversity Action Plan

CILIP has committed to creating, implementing, monitoring and improving an Equalities and Diversity Action Plan with the aim of becoming an organisation that truly represents and achieves diversity and celebrates and encourages it in others.  The Equalities and Diversity Action Plan was launched on July 31st 2017.

The Action Plan sets out our actions in five areas:

  • CILIP as an organisation
  • Diversity & the membership
  • Diversity & the profession
  • Celebrating diversity
  • Diverse and inclusive library & information services
