Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Association of Independent Information Professionals (AIIP) prides itself on being a community of collegial, non-competitive colleagues who support each other through formal and informal activities including sharing expertise, offering support, and building networks.
AIIP’s mission, vision, and values illustrate our commitment to cultivating a supportive and welcoming community. We value the diversity of our members and their respective businesses. This combination strengthens us individually and collectively as we embrace the varied backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences we bring to AIIP.
We value our legacy of collegiality and inclusivity and want to affirm these attributes through tangible and meaningful actions that will enrich our current members’ experience, attract potential members, and strengthen AIIP as an organization.
Our work on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is not a once-and-done endeavor nor a siloed activity. Rather it is incorporating a set of principles into all our activities including our governing documents, annual conference, programming, and individual contributions.
