UKELA's 2020-2025 Strategic Plan sets out a number of aims, including a key aim around strengthening our commitment to a diverse and inclusive organisation. On this page, you can find more details about this aim and the activities we have in place. We will update this page regularly so do check back for new content, which will be uploaded regularly.
We welcome your feedback and comments. Please get in touch.
Our Strategic Plans says that we will promote greater inclusion throughout the environmental law field, aiming for diverse speaker line-ups across our events portfolio; and continue to promote a diverse and inclusive board, voluntary and staff team. We will achieve this in the following ways:
UKELA is committed to creating an inclusive environment where its membership can thrive through diversity. UKELA recognises it has a role to play in supporting legal professionals from all backgrounds, gender, and ethnicities to participate in its activities.
• Increase representation of those from underrepresented groups; as well as building partnerships with different organisations to support this
• Ensure that diversity and inclusion are integral to UKELA’s activities
• Promote and support the active participation of members from a range of backgrounds and provide a platform for diversity of issues
• Increase diversity of UKELA’s Council and Executive bodies
‘It’s good to be part of an environmental organisation that is committed to becoming an equality, diversity and inclusion ally.’
