Event language: 

We are the Icon  Diversity & Inclusion Task and Finish Group, recently formed to look at diversity issues within Icon and the wider field of conservation and to recommend actions which will help to address imbalances within our profession. You can find out a little more about who we are here

Our group was formed to reflect a wide range of characteristics and experiences, but we are only ten people - we recognise that we alone cannot represent every viewpoint, and that is why we want to remain as open and inclusive as possible, right from the outset.

Event description: 


Please note that this event is now fully booked. You can sign up to the waiting list here.

We would still like to hear from you - please take a moment to fill out the Diversity and Inclusion survey.


We invite you to join us for an online roundtable discussion to share your views around diversity and inclusion in conservation. Whatever your background, characteristics or level of experience with diversity issues, we welcome your input - your views and feedback will be vital in informing the work of our group over the coming months.

Following a short introduction to our goals and intentions (15-20 mins), we will open up discussion around the following topics (40-45 mins):

·       How do we define diversity? Protected Characteristics and beyond.

·       What are some of the challenges of getting into the profession? 

·       What are some of the challenges of remaining and progressing within the profession? 

Following this, we will discuss further questions from participants (30 mins). You are welcome to send anonymous questions in advance or during the event via this link.
