"Home Counties North West Region (HCNW) actively encourages inclusivity. Regions, as a whole, represent all CIBSE Members. HCNW therefore seeks to reflect momentum in multi-facetted societies, but particularly in Home Counties North West. The Region is aware that discrimination can still occur, which impairs participation. Accordingly, HCNW has a unique role in promoting diverse experience and perspectives within its community - members and the wider public.
HCNW seeks to deliver cohesion and co-operation throughout the Region's events, its governance and the Region's connections. It will continue to benefit in attracting diverse knowledge and talent. It will continue to support its own development and help the full breadth of its membership and the public make deeper connections at the Region's events.
To Pursue these aims, HCNW will continue to actively support equal opportunities for volunteers, for speakers, attendees and any other contributors. It will continue to promote open elections and co-option and seek to ensure that no volunteer, contributor or participant is dissuaded or treated any less favourably as a direct or indirect result of discrimination. The Region will continue to design a range of activities which engage the full spectrum of members and also the wider public. It will seek to spread this sentiment throughout the Region and through connections with other organisations."
