At our Public Policy Panel meeting in February we are very lucky to be able to have Dianah Worman OBE, CIPD Diversity Adviser, joining us.
Dianah is the Adviser on diversity for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. She directs the Institute’s diversity research programme and leads the development of good practice guidance on diversity to help employers make progress in this challenging and complex field. She also leads the Institute’s public policy work on diversity.
Her current agenda includes ground-breaking research on managing diversity and the business case: age, disability, equal pay, harassment and bullying, as well as race, work–life balance and employing people with criminal records. Some of this research has already been published in a variety of CIPD guides and reports designed to raise awareness about diversity, stimulate thinking about sensible changes in employers’ approaches to the employment and development of people at work and support good practice which is both fair and makes business sense.
Dianah is currently on various government advisory boards and steering committees such as those dealing with the development of a gender equality indicator, the review of age legislation, approaches to addressing the ageing UK population and workforce, and the rehabilitation of ex-offenders through work. Among others, she has worked with Joseph Rowntree, UMIST, Sheffield Hallam, the European Business Network for Social Cohesion, the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR), and various university research centres such as CROW, NIACE and CAWA.
She was awarded an OBE for her services to diversity, in the Queen’s birthday honours list in 2006.
