CIPD Podcast 120 - Diversity Standard

Date: 06/12/16 | Duration: 00:18:26

November 2016 sees the opening of public consultation on the new standard for organisations, specifically addressing the value of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. This new, principles-based British Standard provides a framework for a holistic approach to diversity and inclusion that should enable an organisation to demonstrate its commitment to valuing people.

In this episode we’ll hear from eminent figures in the HR, diversity and wellbeing fields as well as members of the standards drafting panel to discuss how and why these standards are created, the challenges of developing these standards, and how listeners can get involved in the consultation process.

Get involved in the consultation process and read the draft standard.
