The Human Element: Essential people skills for the landscape practitioner
9 Oct 2019
7. Creating Equality Opportunity
This two-part panel will kick-start with discussion on creating equal opportunity in the construction industry. Talent is not the issue; there are very few ‘accessible’ opportunities for young people – so how do we advocate more diverse professional appointments? This will be followed by an interactive brainstorming session with focus on a diversity ‘road map’ for creating change.Learn how to foster more diversity and inclusion in your business, by looking at leadership, people strategy, business model barriers and opportunities, sustainability and culture.
