Building Equality

Building Equality Logo

Building Equality is an alliance of construction consultants, engineers, developers, contractors, and institutions who are passionate about working together and harnessing our collective power to drive LGBT+ inclusion in the construction industry. We have presence across the UK, with 50+ organisations from the industry regularly participating in joint initiatives to support LGBT+ inclusion.

Our vision is to have a construction industry that is wholly welcoming, inclusive and supportive of the LGBT+ community.

Through creating visibility, enabling collaboration and improving engagement, our work has had a positive impact across the industry through:

  • Raising awareness about LGBT+ matters;
  • Supporting and encouraging LGBT+ and Ally role models;
  • Embedding the importance of creating LGBT+ inclusive workplaces;
  • Aiding recruitment and retention within the industry; and
  • Improving member company’s procurement and work winning.

 

Our objectives:

  1. To enable cross-industry collaboration, to drive initiatives to build a more LGBT+ inclusive industry.
  2. To support other organisations within the industry in setting up and maintaining their LGBT+ employee networks.
  3. To promote the industry to university / college students and early career professionals as an LGBT+ inclusive place to work.
  4. To make LGBT+ inclusion a Boardroom topic, encouraging LGBT+ and Ally role models from the top down.
  5. To encourage, influence and enable the supply chain to create more LGBT+ inclusive working environments on site and in other work spaces.
