Housing Diversity Network recently supported DAC Beachcroft and enei with events in London and Manchester and also with a survey they conducted in the housing sector. The results of this survey are contained in the report available from the link below. This contains a range of interesting insights from the 29 organisations that responded including that 45% did not believe that decision makers are fully trained to make objective assessments free from bias and 43% did not believe that their Board considered diversity and inclusion in succession planning for executive and non-executive roles and other senior or key appointments. A range of recommendations are included for how organisations can address these issues.
Housing Diversity Network, as the leading provider of equality, diversity and inclusion services in the housing sector is of course happy to talk to any organisation about how they can tackle these issues in their organisations and the support we can provide.
