About the Event

While great strides have been made in diversity and inclusion within the RTPI. In its long history, (107 years), Wei is the first President from an ethnic minority community. Various studies show that Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities are underrepresented in leadership positions in all sectors of the Planning Profession. How can the imbalance be addressed so that in the next 3 years there is a fairer representation within leadership positions within the Industry?
