We're working to ensure that the architecture sector and the wider construction industry is representative of the communities and societies we serve.
We know that there are barriers to entry and progression in the profession, and this particularly impacts individuals from underrepresented and underrecognised groups.
Supported through expertise and insight by RIBA Council's Finding and Accessing Architecture Task and Finishing Group, we're committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive profession.
Our work to do this is underpinned by the Cultural Intelligence (CQ) framework of inclusive behaviours. We will be using data and research to guide and inform our work, updating formal mechanisms, for example HR systems and policies, nurturing inclusive talents and skills, and influencing the profession through role modelling and leadership.
We know there is much more to do, and we are always listening.
