The Academy of Urbanism is a politically independent, not-for-profit, international membership organisation that brings together the current and next generation of urban leaders, thinkers and practitioners. The organisation wishes to embody a strategy for equality, diversity and inclusion within its core beliefs.
As such the Academy will:
- endeavour to tackle inequalities by ensuring that staff and members are treated fairly, and do not experience discrimination.
- promote diversity by valuing our members and staff, ensuring that we deliver programmes that suit all sections of society.
- promote inclusivity by striving to meet the needs of different people, taking action to create environments where we all feel respected and able to achieve our potential.
In order to achieve the above objectives the Academy has endorsed a strategy which incorporates three policy strands to promote equality diversity and inclusivity within our internal team, our membership, and our dealings with the wider public.
We invite you to read the strategy and make any comments to [email protected].
