BAME in Property announces first ten partnerships

Following a successful year as the leading ethnic diversity network for the built environment sector, BAME in Property is starting the process of evolving into a membership organisation.

BAME in Property is delighted to announce its first ten partnerships with a range of organisations and companies in the built environment sector.

BAME in Property’s Partners are an integral part of the organisation. They support and help promote the important cause to different demographics within the built environment sector. From recruitment companies to leading media partners, membership bodies and emerging diversity and urban groups, BAME in Property’s Partners are truly representative of our diverse industry.

The first ten Partners include: Estates Gazette, the Royal Town Planning Institute, Gradfeed, Housing Diversity Network, Hyre Proptech Recruitment, Women in Planning, Building People, Urbanist Platform, Aspiring Women and Alt Urban.

Commenting on the transition to a membership organisation, Founder of BAME in Property, Priya Shah said: “Some of the biggest issues and opportunities facing the built environment sector are recruitment and retention of diverse talent, emerging technologies, the housing crisis and Brexit. What diversity within companies and around the boardroom table brings is diversity in thought and ultimately, more informed outputs. I am delighted to welcome BAME in Property’s first ten Partners to help promote our work and advocacy and allow us the opportunity to support them in their work too. I look forward to developing our partnerships over the coming months and establishing BAME in Property’s mark as a membership organisation for the industry.”

In due course, BAME in Property will be announcing its Corporate Membership packages for companies to sign-up and receive numerous benefits and support. Member companies will have the opportunity to participate in industry-wide roundtables and high-level discussions about ethnic diversity in the industry. By coming together, the industry can share ideas and best practice.

Corporate members will receive support with their internal BAME/ethnicity groups, recruitment advice and can ask us for recommendations on more diverse speakers for industry events.

Coinciding with the announcement of the first ten Partners, is the launch of BAME in Property’s brand new website:
