Enough talk, time for practical action: BAME retention in the built environment

07 Oct 2020
Culture Change sessions with Building People

As yet another report is circulated highlighting the well documented lack of diversity and social mobility in the sector. Isn’t it time to come together and deliver something practical and sustainable that will enable more people from the BAME (Black Asian and Minority Ethnic) communities to begin and succeed in built environment careers? How about a practical solution that can be developed together and used by both Clients and other organisations that work with diverse audiences to provide a more effective service?

Join Bola Abisogun OBE, Founder and Chair of DiverseCity Surveyors, along with other key speakers, in a disruptive and interactive session that offers a real solution to the challenge of how we challenge and change the culture of the industry. This event won’t be a talking shop and it won’t produce a report, but - with your help - it will bring about structural and sustainable change. 

Facilitated by Building People, this open and inclusive event is part of a series of panel discussions and workshops focusing on the theme of culture change, with sessions highlighting diverse audiences from ex-military, youth, BAME, women, ex-offender and LGBTQ+ communities.
