  15. 15. Key findings so far 1. Much of what people want to see in terms of improved diversity & representation are already built into the judging process and criteria, but aren’t sufficiently well-known 2. There is a real opportunity for the Carnegie Kate Greenaway medals to be more visible in celebrating diversity, equalities and representation 3. Where people are looking for greater and more inclusive participation, this is often already part of the Awards – for example, the Shadowing Scheme 4. There is an opportunity to ensure that structural diversity and representation are addressed, but this has to happen in the context of CILIP’s wider ambitions to diversify the workforce
  16. 16.

In particular we are committed to the aims set out in our Equalities and Diversity Action Plan.” CILIP Membership Pack 2017
