Join the RIBA Inclusion Charter

Posted on October 20, 2020

Collective Architecture (championed by Director, Jude Barber) has signed the #RIBAInclusionCharter with a commitment to making architecture more inclusive. We would encourage others to do the same. Signing up comes with support, advice and guidance.

By signing the RIBA Inclusion Charter, practices and individuals:

  • Acknowledge the urgent need for inclusion in the architecture profession and wider construction industry
  • Commit to setting inclusion targets and an EDI action plan for their practice
  • Commit to developing their workplace culture, talent pipeline and ways of working to support inclusion
  • Commit to publicly reporting on progress of their EDI plan - transparency and accountability are vital to drive cultural change
  • Commit to embedding inclusive design in all projects, and contributing to the development of inclusive environments.
