CSP Council chair Alex MacKenzie: ‘We will be looking for a range of members to put themselves forward for this new committee.

They will have the opportunity to help shape our work and to inject energy and enthusiasm into leading the profession and governing the CSP. 

‘We aim to create a profession that welcomes everyone, reflects the populations we work in, values diversity and also works within the wider society to influence changes there too.’

Her Frontline column urges every member to get involved with the new equity, diversity and belonging strategy.

Why should you get involved?

Becoming a CSP committee member can be a rewarding experience. 

It means you will have the opportunity to: 

  • monitor progress from a member perspective in the achievement of the equity, diversity and belonging strategy – including consideration against the indicators of success and action plans
  • make recommendations as to how the equity, diversity and belonging strategy/elements of the CSP corporate strategy should evolve over time
  • in-depth consideration of policy decisions to inform council’s overall decision-making
  • act as a spokesperson that is being quoted in a CSP press statement or in Frontline articles, for example 
  • inform operational work, ie member monitoring data categories; equality impact assessments; training and development for groups of members (for example, stewards or council and committee members) and providing input and guidance on language and terminology
