What is an inclusive workplace? Why does it matter? What are the advantages and opportunities? How do you build a genuinely inclusive and diverse workplace?
There is now a substantial body of research showing that well-managed, diverse teams are more productive and effective – in both creative and economic terms. But diverse teams only work in genuinely inclusive environments. So, how do we ensure that architectural practice is positioned to make the most of the opportunities?
In this session Dr Karen Morley will outline the ingredients of the inclusive workplace, and how this might be achieved. This will be followed by chaired discussion between Karen and a panel of architects, who will reflect on what these ideas might mean in the context of architectural practice. How might they be adopted in productive ways? What are the possible hiccups and what are the opportunities?
This is the first in a series of events looking at workplace issues in architecture.
Chaired by Dr Karen Burns
