New Building Inclusivity roundtable set for 6 October

Industry professionals invited to join free online roundtable supporting ethnic minorities on 6 October.

Industry professionals from across the construction and infrastructure sectors have been warmly invited to join a free online Building Inclusivity roundtable supporting ethnic minorities on Thursday 6 October.

The roundtable is the latest in a series of insightful online events as part of Building Inclusivity, a new cross-industry ED&I campaign from the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE). 

Encouraging the industry to create more inclusive workplaces, the roundtables bring together expert organisations, inspirational best-practice from ACE members, emerging professionals and individuals from the LGBTQ+, neurodivergent and ethnic minority communities to discuss the challenges and solutions to creating more inclusive workplaces for all. 

This latest roundtable will explore the support of ethnic minorities in the workplace, with Farai Mwashita (CBRE) representing ACE's Emerging Professionals group. 

It will also explore best-practice with Melania Santoro (Arcadis), Kalisha Sepjar (Ramboll), Tony McCaffery (Diversity Scotland), Ian Heptonstall (Supply Chain Sustainability School), Sharon Slinger (Constructing Rainbows).  

Claire Clifford, ACE director of people, skills and culture, said: “Our initial Building Inclusivity roundtables have been absolutely fantastic. An open and welcoming atmosphere has encouraged a lot of insightful discussion so far, and our next event on 6 October looks set to build on that spirit of openness and optimism.

“Aimed at a broad range of the industry, our online roundtable is free, open to all, and a must-attend for senior leadership, people experts, team leaders and emerging professionals. We look forward to seeing you there.”  

DIARY DATE: Building Inclusivity. Thursday 6 October, 12.00pm to 1.00pm.
