BuildOUT California wishes to amplify the invitation from our colleagues at Building Equality, which is based in the United Kingdom, for their Trans Awareness Week event entitled: Trans Allyship Toolbox Talk Launch.
Building Equality is an alliance of construction consultants, engineers, developers, contractors, and institutions who are passionate about working together and harnessing the collective power to drive LGBTQ+ inclusion in the construction, engineering and built environment industry. Building Equality has presence across the UK, with 60+ organizations from the industry regularly participating in joint initiatives to support LGBTQ+ inclusion.
Building Equality’s vision is to have a construction industry that is wholly welcoming, inclusive and supportive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender + other related communities.
BuildOUT California is honored to have had a close working relationship with Building Equality where we jointly produced, in association with other key UK-based LGBT Built Community Industry Organizations, the June 7, 2023 event to celebrate the efforts of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Royal Institution of British Architects (RIBA), The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and the Landscape Institute of the UK, and their joint Memorandum of Understanding toward increased inclusion and diversity.
