"How can an industry experiencing severe skills shortages, with a predominantly white male and ageing workforce, not seek to become as diverse and inclusive as possible? We have relied for far too long on the easy fix of overseas workers and this has now resulted in a problem – and a huge opportunity. Building People supports all organisations and initiatives that are working to make our industry more diverse and we are proud to support BAME in Property and the forum it offers for professionals who are passionate about increasing ethnic diversity in the property and planning sectors.”
