Equity, diversity and inclusion
IWFM is committed to placing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) at the heart of our organisation, governance, membership and profession. We seek to create a community in which all people feel included, valued, supported and that they belong. Our ambition is to foster and support improved EDI practices throughout the workplace and facilities management profession and industry to achieve better outcomes for all. Morally and socially, we believe that this is the right thing to do.
We have created a Focus Group to help us shape and articulate our position and approach on EDI and have published a Public Statement outlining our commitment to this initiative, including how we will collect, analyse and use data to help us understand and break down barriers. Our Action Plan implementing the Public Statement will be published here shortly.
What we do
We initiate meaningful change and empower our members to influence the profession's future. We also underpin the professional standards for the workplace and facilities management profession.
And we provide fully regulated qualifications to upskill and advance the profession.
