CIBSE Diversity and Inclusivity Committee - shaping the future of CIBSE and the building services profession for improved business performance

“CIBSE members, affiliates and staff work every day to advance the art of the possible. Our product, the built environment, is shared and enjoyed by all.  We believe that an inclusive culture brings resilience, creativity and innovation – qualities that deliver both better buildings and a stronger building service engineering community. We are working hard to ensure that our organisation and profession are welcoming to all, for the benefit of all.”

This Committee and its four panels is in the process of being re-constituted and formed and more information will appear here shortly.

Members of the Technology Committee are initially appointed for a three year period. At the end of this period they can be re-appointed for a further three year term. It is desirable that new members be added regularly to the Committee to bring in new ideas and expertise, however, it is equally desirable to retain expertise.
