IADT awarded Investors in Diversity accreditation
IiD is Ireland’s first all-encompassing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion mark. IiD is overseen by the Irish Centre for Diversity and supported by Ibec and the DCU Centre of Excellence for Diversity and Inclusion. IiD Bronze recognises that IADT has the capacity to build a strong foundation to embed EDI into the institute’s wider organisational systems. Importantly, IADT is one of only a few higher education institutions in Ireland to apply for, and achieve, this standard.
Recognising and effectively managing people’s different skills; abilities, experiences, perspectives, backgrounds, needs, issues, barriers, family and personal circumstances is critical to the success of any organisation. IiD offers a clear and structured framework to transform diversity practices and culture. The Irish Centre for Diversity utilises cutting-edge tools to measure and inform workplace organisations in the following area: Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE).
The accreditation runs from June 2020 and remains valid for 24 months.
