Inspiring Diversity in Property - EDI Hub

Inspiring diversity in property

Property Week launched its inaugural 'Inspiring Diversity in Property' campaign in June 2023.

The broad programme of activity aims to drive real change in the sector by recognising and embracing those organisations that are committed to improving diversity and working to encourage companies and individuals to set specific, measurable goals and work towards them.

The campaign will also highlight issues, offer benchmarking, and provide tools, practical advice and strategies to help organisations achieve a more diverse workforce in the coming years.

You will find all the relevant content for this campaign in this Hub. If you would like to get involved, please contact clientsolutions@propertyweek.com
