Who we are
BAME in Property is a forum for BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnicities) and non-BAME professionals who are passionate about increasing ethnic diversity in the property and planning sectors.
BAME in Property’s aim is to support talented people of all backgrounds, encourage upcoming generations to venture into fulfilling careers, and inspire businesses to create a wave of positive change.
Our approach is twofold, exploring the importance of ethnic diversity from recruitment, as well as planning delivery perspectives. We place importance on diversity of inputs and personnel to result in varied and innovative outputs.
During the process of signing up to either the mailing list or reserving tickets to our events we will ask for some personal data from you. We do not sell any of your personal data. We use it to ensure that we can stay connected with you, and send you notice of events that may be of interest. We also use your data to verify that you are a real person, working within the commercial real estate industry, in line with our Terms of Service. This site is setup for use by BAME and non-BAME professionals in the built environment sector and this is why there may be times where we need to confirm the identity of anyone who subscribes to our Network.
