The Building People network now includes more than 60 organisations
Building People has announced new partnerships to help improve representation across the built environment sector.
Formed in 2017, the online inclusion hub provides free access to work opportunities, events and industry knowledge.
The hub now has more than 60 members, with areas of focus including race and ethnicity, gender, youth, and disability, neurodiversity and wellbeing.
The new partners include the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES) and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT).
Commenting on the partnerships, Building People’s founder Rebecca Lovelace said: “Joining forces with CIAT and CICES has bolstered both the number and clout of professional bodies we partner with.”
“Our overall goal is to be the centre for excellence when it comes to equity, diversity and inclusion in the built environment – collaboration is key to achieving that vision, which is why we’re looking forward to working together to improve representation and to create inclusive cultures.”
Lovelace added: “We’re thrilled to welcome BFA and DAF to Building People and to our collaborative movement for inclusive change.
“Bringing together and amplifying the voices of the under-represented forms a key part of what we do at Building People. The more that organisations such as BFA and DAF join in, the more we can drive behavioural and cultural change together.”
