The Welding Institute is a firm supporter of diversity, equity and inclusion and encourages equality of opporunity for all.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: A Members Charter
The Welding Institute’s Professional Board established a working group to look at Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (D,E & I) in 2022. This group was asked to consider what more can be done to ensure The Welding Institute reflects and supports the diversity and range of its Members through representation and equal access to opportunities. In order to help achieve this, the group has drafted a Members’ Charter that will ensure The Welding Institute;
The Charter sets out The Welding Institute's position on D, E & I. Other organisations have done this successfully as a public demonstration of their commitment to broadening and widening the agenda, to raise the profile of D,E & I, to instigate discussion and to build trust amongst members. Our charter has now been accepted by the Professional Board of The Welding Institute after widespread consultation with representatives from the other working groups. Our Charter lists key actions that The Welding Institute will take to bring our vision to reality and to demonstrate our commitment to the values we hold.
