Working together to BeMore inclusive.
At urban we believe that everyone should be able to reach their full potential based on their skills and abilities, not their background. We know that diversity and inclusion make organisations more effective, more successful and more profitable. That’s why we work in ways that promote inclusion, supporting our clients to build a diverse workforce and BeMore inclusive.
As part of our commitment to BeMore inclusive, we are excited to be working with the Blueprint for All (formally known as the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust), which runs high impact programmes that inspire and enable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed.
urban and Blueprint for All have partnered together to launch the #BeMoreInclusive programme. With people from BAME backgrounds making up less than 7% of registered architects, something needs to change. Therefore, we have designed the #BeMoreInclusive programme to support young people from under-represented backgrounds into architecture and to help built environment employers to access a more diverse workforce.
The #BeMoreInclusive programme will deliver change through two streams of work:
Our goal was to raise over £20,000 for Blueprint for All in the first 12 months of the partnership. We are delighted to announce that we have we have successfully achieved our Year 1 target in just 10 months!
