The RIBA is committed to making architecture and the broader construction industry more inclusive and believes a diverse and inclusive profession, representative of the societies our members work within, is pivotal to meeting the challenges of the future faced by our profession.

In light of the construction industry having the worst gender pay gap and the suggestions that racial equality is potentially an even bigger issue, more needs to be done to address these problems. What are the next steps and how can we make positive changes?

The inspirational speakers will have a platform to promote and discuss methods to push for better diversity within the industry, paying particular focus on gender and race diversity within the Built Environment.
