BAME In Property

BAME In Property

Bringing Ethnicity to Property

OUR ETHOS

After reading that 14% of the UK’s population classifies as BAME but only 1.2% of the built environment sector is BAME, Priya was inspired to create BAME in Property. After all, if the role of planning is to create diverse and inclusive communities, the sector should be reflective of this.

BAME in Property’s aim is to support talented people of all backgrounds, encourage upcoming generations to venture into fulfilling careers, and inspire businesses to create a wave of positive change.

Our approach is twofold, exploring the importance of ethnic diversity from recruitment, as well as planning delivery perspectives. We place importance on diversity of inputs and personnel to result in varied and innovative outputs.

Through engaging discussions, roundtables, workshops and networking events, we have started a conversation about:

  • Why there is a lack of ethnic diversity in the built environment sector

  • What are the main prejudices faced by ethnic minorities in the property and planning sectors

  • What can individuals and companies do to start addressing this.

Through our work and advocacy, we aspire to make the industry more attractive to talented professionals from diverse backgrounds.
