At the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) we are committed to contributing to a diverse and inclusive construction sector, one which delivers the best opportunities and better outcomes for those that create the built environment. We believe that by valuing difference and promoting fair treatment, we will see a more sustainable sector that attracts and retains a rich and diverse pool of talent.

To help us to achieve these aims we have produced an interim equality, diveristy and inclusion (EDI) Action Plan setting out what the CIOB will do in the period June 2021 – December 2022, a timetable which aligns with the remaining term of our current Corporate Plan. Our intention is to ‘lay the foundations’ for a broader, more ambitious EDI plan, with objectives for the period to the end of the decade,  aligning with the CIOB’s Vision for 2030.

You will see that our proposed actions cover all areas of our operation as a global professional membership body including; membership services, education, policy and public affairs, marketing and digital and our role as an employer.

Comments on our interim EDI Action Plan are welcomed from all members and colleagues.
