On 20 October, 2023, Members of The Welding Institute gathered in Cambridge to mark the formal launch of our new Charter for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
Hosted by Dr Claire Kimpton (Chair of Professional Board) and in the presence of our President Julia King, Baroness Brown of Cambridge, Members asserted their support for an open and inclusive organisation that aims to provide equality of opportunity to all, irrespective of grade or experience.
Our President, committee and working group chairs signed a specially created charter document which sets out our commitment.
In her introduction, Claire Kimpton noted that this is the start of a journey and the signing marks a public commitment by our committee and working group chairs on behalf of the membership to our ambition.
Our speakers, Julia King, Professor Steve Jones and Dr Melissa Riley spoke with incite and passion of their own experiences and hopes for the future. Their thoughtful observations prompted much thought and discussion over the celebration lunch that followed.
We hope that all of our Members will engage with our ambition to support, include and encourage both existing and new Members of The Welding Institute to make us a bigger, bolder and stronger organisation in the future.
