RIBA Radio

Broadcast 18 to 26 November 2021

From 18 to 26 November 2021, our annual Inclusion Festival took the form of a dedicated radio station, broadcast live from the bookshop at the RIBA's HQ in London.

For seven days, Marsha Ramroop, former BBC journalist and the RIBA's Director of Inclusion & Diversity, hosted a lively mixture of music, live and pre-recorded interviews, discussions and debate - featuring over 90 special guests from across the worlds of architecture, design, arts, culture, and sport, as well as key leaders from the worlds of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI).

The pop-up radio station focused on promoting diversity and inclusion within the architecture profession, underpinned by the key themes of CQ (Cultural Intelligence).
