UK Construction Week | Strategy eats culture for breakfast

Watch the recording of our session on LGBTQ+ inclusion at UK Construction Week

Equality, diversity and inclusion are inevitably part of culture.

We are all now somewhat aware of equality, diversity and inclusion but how can we turn that awareness into action? Industry, and organisational, culture must be understood in order to understand and prioritise equality, diversity and inclusion efforts.


How the industry acts and reacts to LGBTQ+ awareness and inclusion will provide the answers on the positive action required to facilitate change. This EDI strategy and culture must work together and mutually support each other. Otherwise change will be slow and success will suffer. In this session, speakers from key industry groups seek to come up with a tangible action plan for change.

If you missed the session live, you can watch the recording on YouTube.


Members of the panel for this session were:

  • Chris Ricot, Co-chair – Planning Out
  • Christina Valentine, Multi-skilled tradeswoman
  • David Mann, Chartered Building Surveyor, Co-chair – Freehold
  • Misa Von Tunzelman, Head of Marketing & Communications – BNP Paribas Real Estate and Strutt & Parker
