The Chartered Institute of Loss Adjusters is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity and inclusion amongst its membership and staff. Our aim is that our membership and staff will be truly representative of all sections of society and each feels respected and able to give of their best.
To that end the purpose of this policy is to provide inclusion and fairness for all in our membership and staff and not to discriminate on grounds of gender, gender reassignment, marital status (including civil partnerships and single sex marriage), race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion, age or any other status.
We oppose all forms of discrimination. All members, staff and other stakeholders, whether part-time, full-time or temporary, will be treated fairly, equally and with respect. Acceptance for membership, elevation, training or any other benefit of membership will be on an equal basis. All members will be helped and encouraged to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the membership will be fully utilised to maximise the benefit of the Institute to its members.
Our members and staff are expected to follow our commitment and to do so in the positive spirit that this is intended.
- To maintain an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all our members
are recognised and valued.
- Every member is entitled to an environment that promotes dignity and respect to all. No form of
bias, intimidation, bullying or harassment will be tolerated.
- Training, development and progression opportunities are available to all members.
- To promote the fact that diversity and inclusion in the workplace is good management practice and makes sound business sense and is a fundamental principle that businesses and bodies should embrace to reach
their full potential.
- We continue to review all our membership and employment practices and procedures to ensure fairness.
- Breaches of our inclusion policy may be regarded as professional misconduct and could lead to
disciplinary proceedings by the Institute. Members are reminded of their duty to report all such
matters to the Professional Conduct Committee.
- This policy is fully supported by the Executive Committee, Council and the Executive Director.
- This policy will be monitored and reviewed annually.
