The IPG is pleased to support the publishing industry’s efforts to promote diversity, inclusion and equality of employment. We regularly cover the issues in our Conferences, blogs and other channels, and are proud of the contributions made by many of our members to diversity in both output and employment.
We are active supporters of industry groups that promote equal employment opportunities. These include Creative Access, a body founded in 2012 to provide opportunities for paid internships in the creative industries for young people of graduate (or equivalent) standard from under-represented black, Asian and other minority ethnic backgrounds (BAME). Creative Access aims to improve people’s chances of securing full-time jobs and, in the longer term, increase diversity and address the imbalance in the sector. For more about its work, visit the Creative Access website.
Within the IPG we recognise equality in all its reforms, including with regard to age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
