“It is evident BAME people in social housing and related construction and improvement organisations does seem to be at 1990 levels in qualitative and quantitative terms – we really should have done much better by now.  We need to make a difference at individual and institutional levels.  We are pleased that we see better progress in some of the other diversity strands but clearly a focus on ethnic E&D is needed now.”
