We would be delighted if you could join the BPF and Revo for half a day of sharing Diversity and Inclusivity best practice, focussing on the workplace and the built environment.

The first panel will focus on the economic, social and business benefits of genuinely diverse organisations, looking at the changes our industry can expect in the future and how companies can address the headwinds that hamper progress. The second session will focus on inclusive placemaking, the communities in which we live and work and how we can create places that are accessible and enjoyed by all.
