Over the coming months, we will be sharing the success stories of our under-represented students and alumni, hosting discussions on the challenges people from diverse backgrounds face when entering the built environment, and championing voices of influential leaders and figures from disadvantaged groups across the sector.
Our coverage will feature contributions and perspectives from an array of diverse backgrounds, including women, those from ethnic minority backgrounds, and those with experience of care.
As Charlotte Thackeray, UCEM’s Outreach and Inclusion Lead, commented:
“The built environment should be as diverse as the communities it serves. It is always encouraging to see the steps the sector is taking to recognise what more it can do, but it is also important that UCEM highlights the success stories of its students and alumni to raise awareness of a more representative built environment.”
