The CIOB’s Approach to Diversity and Inclusion




The built environment is for everyone and the more inclusive and diverse the industry can become, the more it will serve the needs of our communities. The CIOB is fully committed to improving Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the construction industry and for the first time we have appointed an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Transformation Lead. This webinar is presented by Mark Harrison who is the Head of EDI at the CIOB and has extensive experience in leading EDI roles across various sectors.

Hear from Mark on the state of diversity and inclusion in the UK construction industry, why EDI is so important, what the CIOB is doing about it, and what employers and employees can do themselves to further this important issue.

Please note this video has optional closed captions.

The two books Mark has mentioned in his webinar are:

Iris Bohnet: What Works (gender equality by design) (Belknap Press 2018)

Emma Dabiri: What white people can do next (Penguin 2020)

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
