The first event from Building People in its series of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion briefings for the built environment sector.
How to attract & retain the best talent, engage with local communities & meaningfully address public sector EDI procurement requirements.
You know that people in the built environment sector have been talking about Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for some time, but what does that mean in real terms for you, your teams and your business?
In this session we will address how getting this right will not only save your bottom line in these challenging time, but add to it.
How you attract and retain the best talent, how you engage with the communities you’re working within and how you can meaningfully address the EDI requirements that are mandatory in public sector procurement, are just some of the areas we’ll give you insight into, and the behaviours, policies, and practices which will get you there.
This session will be delivered by Marsha Ramroop, global award-winning Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategist, and Founder Director of Unheard Voice Consultancy Ltd. Marsha has formulated a culture change methodology which has been recognised as successful with an international prize from the UN-backed conglomerate of best practice for personal and organisational development, the IFTDO.
Marsha was the inaugural Director of Inclusion and Diversity at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) so has a clear understanding of how a traditional profession has been running and the challenges it faces. Her culture change programme for staff at RIBA received 100% recommendation feedback from managers and significant behavioural shift within months.
In addition to inclusion expertise, Marsha has a post-graduate degree in Business Management, which included organisational behaviour, as well as a degree and post-graduate in Journalism - originally having a 30-year career in broadcasting; skills she now uses to ensure clear communication.
Marsha is also Vice-Chair of the Institute of Equality and Diversity Professionals, an institute which strives to verify and set standards for the growing vocation of EDI practitioners. She works with the Cultural Intelligence Center, the global headquarters of cultural intelligence (CQ) as one of their published and highlighted thought- leaders on impactful organisational change, as well as a worldwide trainer and facilitator.
