ILP announces support for Women In Lighting

May 28, 2019 | Industry

The ILP supports the aim of the Women In Lighting platform to increase the profile of successful women working in lighting design to help encourage, support and inspire the next generation. 

The ILP recognises that women currently have a lower professional profile despite making up approximately 50% of the lighting design profession. 

To help change this, the ILP pledges that when organising lighting design talks, committees and activities, we will aim to create a 50/50 gender balance when inviting speakers and participants.

The ILP supports initiatives to encourage more women and girls to choose a career in lighting engineering, to help the overall engineering profession achieve an equal gender balance. The ILP commits to providing equal opportunities for everyone within the Institution’s activities.

The ILP seeks to be as inclusive as possible, so if you have any concerns about applying for membership / attending our Exterior Lighting Diploma courses, LDC local events or our one-day courses for whatever reason please let us know and we will try to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that you can fully engage with the ILP.
