The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland is delighted to be awarded Investors in Diversity Silver accreditation from the Irish Centre for Diversity in recognition of our commitment to a diverse and equal workplace. Silver accreditation affirms that as an organisation we have been benchmarked against other bodies and have both embedded inclusive practices throughout the workplace in the College as well as developed and fostered a sense of fairness and belonging among colleagues. The accreditation is valid for a two-year period from November 2022 – November 2024.
Commenting on the award CEO Dr Terry McWade said, “We’re delighted to receive the Investors in Diversity Silver award. RCPI recognises the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion and leads initiatives that support, promote and demonstrate a culture of mutual respect, inclusivity and diversity. We are committed to creating an environment where diversity is celebrated and everyone is treated fairly regardless of gender, age, race, disability, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, civil status, family status, or membership of the Traveller community. This award is recognition of our efforts to date, and we look forward to building upon this and continuing to embed diversity and inclusion in everything we do including all of our education and training activities."
Caroline Tyler, Managing Director of Irish Centre for Diversity added: “Congratulations to all the team at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland on achieving Investors in Diversity Silver. We look forward to working with you on the next stage of your journey and celebrating the impact across the whole organisation.”
