Connecting organisations that work with diverse and under-represented people

There are many organisations that work with diverse audiences providing career support across the built environment.

We are bringing these organisations and initiatives together to facilitate discussion, collaboration and change. This 'Network of Networks' is open to all organisations that work with under-represented groups to facilitate careers in the built environment.

Please get in touch to join in.
