Our Diversity Policy
The Society adopts a diversity policy that applies to the operation of the Board and all our Sub Committees. The policy includes the selection and recruitment of Board members which is overseen by our Nominations Committee. This is to ensure that discrimination and stereotyping play no part in the process.
The Society’s policy is to recruit purely on merit alone and is free from bias on the grounds of factors such as age, disability, gender, sexual preference or race that are not relevant to the person’s ability to fulfil the role.
The Society does not adopt specific diversity targets related to Board composition. New appointments are made based on objective selection criteria highlighting the specific skills and experience needed to ensure a rounded Board. However, the Society also recognises and values the differences between people and understands the positive benefits for our members of employing a diverse range of talented people on our Board. Therefore we will always try to ensure that the recruitment process is as expansive as possible to encourage applications from a diverse range, whilst ensuring the required skill sets are likely to be covered as well.
A team dedicated to our member-first ethos and implementing the strategic vision of the Society
