RE—SET—GO PUBLIC EVENT: Tackling architecture’s diversity problem

06 March 2022

Wednesday 23rd March 2022, 6.30pm – 9pm. What did we learn? What next? What can you do?

RE—SET—GO has been tackling the lack of diversity in architecture by making space for excluded voices and piloting ways to build more progressive and representative architectural communities.

In its initial phase, the programme has provided paid work experience, participative workshops and 1-to-1 mentoring for Black, Asian and multi-ethnic individuals, non-binary individuals and women from the boroughs of Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Wandsworth.

As the pilot year of RE—SET—GO comes to an end, join us in reflecting and celebrating with all those who have participated in the programme and helped deliver support to future generations of architects and designers.

When
Wednesday 23rd March 2022, 6.30pm – 9pm

Where
Peveril Garden Studios
140 Great Dover Street
London SE1 4GW

What
In this event we will capture, share and disseminate lessons about supporting diversity learned through RE—SET—GO, and more broadly across the built environment sector. We will turn the spotlight on the issue of under-representation in architecture and the barriers faced by Black, Asian and multi-ethnic individuals, women, and non-binary people at each stage of their career.

What can we each do to create meaningful change?

Panel discussion
Hosted by programme co-leader and architect, Nisha Kurian, we set the challenge of delivering meaningful change to a panel of experts who will share their experiences and ideas for creating a more inclusive architectural sector, including:

  • The participant
  • The educator
  • The public sector client
  • The practice boss

Drinks and networking
The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception and networking opportunity for those looking to access or progress within the industry, or to connect with peers and industry professionals about the next phase of RE—SET—GO.

The event is funded by Stride and supported by the London Practice Forum.
