It is recognised that diversity, including gender balance within senior practitioners, is important to insolvency regulators as it supports public confidence in the insolvency system, so that those administering the system reflect the broader community, and to ensure that the insolvency profession is appropriately diverse.
Recognising and accepting the value of diversity within the insolvency profession will support:
- A wider talent pool through which insolvency practitioners are drawn; and
- A positive, inclusive and responsible culture, contributing to the higher quality of work, innovation and productivity within the insolvency system.
IAIR members will endeavour to promote diversity within their own organisations and within the wider insolvency profession.
