I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you, your families, your colleagues and your organisations all the best for 2015, we look forward to working with you over the next 12 months.
Looking back over 2014 it’s certainly been a successful year and I feel we have much better contact and relationships with our membership base.
Diversity Network Accreditation is moving forward from strength to strength as are our varied mentoring programmes.
I am really pleased with our partnership activity with the Centre for Local Economic Studies in Manchester and I am looking forward to working with them in the new year on the business case for diversity.
I am also looking forward to seeing the culmination of the CIH’s Presidential Commission on Diversity and let’s hope there’s some real recommendations we can sign up that will make a difference for the sector now and in the future.
I am also pleased with many of our partnerships, particularly HouseProud where we linked up across London and the South East to share best practice.
The Practitioner Groups also seem to be going from strength to strength.
I am looking forward to the enhanced work we will being doing in the South West.
