We're thrilled to have been shortlisted for this year's enei Inclusive Communications award. Producing communications that are inclusive of diverse audiences should be recognised as standard by public relations professionals.

As the CIPR's Diversity and Inclusion Forum, we will continue to ensure inclusion is at the heart of everything the Institute does.
