Public relations professionals to discuss the business case for diversity
The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has today announced that it will host the next in its series of successful Equal Access Network events on Thursday 7 November at the CIPR offices in Russell Square.
The event, part of an initiative created by the CIPR’s Diversity Working Group, will look at the ‘Business Case for Diversity’ and will bring together senior business leaders and public relations professionals to discuss how leaders can increase access and encourage talented individuals into public relations. In addition, guests will leave with practical recommendations for enhancing diversity within their team through recruitment and professional development, as well as gaining a better understanding of how and why a representative public relations team can deliver better results.
The event will include open discussion as well as remarks from an invited panel including John Lehal, Managing Director of Insight Public Affairs; Anne Groves, Director of the Taylor Bennett Foundation; Morgan Lobb, Managing Director of Diversity Jobs; Rachel Krys, Head of Media and Communications at Equally Ours (Equality and Diversity Forum) and Dr Karen Jochelson, Director of Economy and Employment Programme at Equality and Human Rights Commission.
The event is open to CIPR members and non-members and following the discussion, guests are invited to stay for drinks, refreshments and networking.

Guests are asked to make a voluntary donation to the Taylor Bennett Foundation when registering their attendance.
We are delighted to announce the next in our series of Equal Access Network events. We have an excellent panel lined up to discuss the business case for diversity and we hope that guests will benefit from an opportunity to discuss the underlying economic and business reasons for supporting diversity initiatives.
