‘The architectural profession has had to find new ways of working and deftly respond to fast-moving challenges’
Buckley Gray Yeoman’s proud partnership with the W campaign is a manifestation of our deep and long-term commitment to tackling gender equality issues within the profession and highlighting the achievements of women in the design and construction industry.
Our employees take gender equality seriously and understand that it is fundamental to promoting greater diversity in architecture – our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Forum establishes and furthers a set of diversity pledges each year, oversees our practice Diversity Survey, and reports on our annual voluntary Gender Pay Gap review. A strong female presence at management level demonstrates our belief in equal opportunities and retaining female staff through their career.
We offer some of the best benefits in the architectural profession, such as generous maternity pay and wide-ranging flexible working arrangements, and believe increasing diversity in the workplace is essential to nurturing our commitment to create a friendly, cohesive and engaged workforce. Our partnership of the W programme plays a key role in our talent-attraction strategy and our participation is appealing to many candidates, regardless of gender.
