WINTER SOCIAL 2021

BY WOMEN IN ARCHITECTURE
Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 6:00 PM  9:00 PM
TICKETS
WIA REACHED OUT TO INVITE US TO ATTEND THIS EVENT.

WILL WE SEE YOU THERE?
This event will be a fantastic opportunity for Women in Architecture to meet like-minded individuals in and outside of the industry.

We will be joined by Marsha Ramroop, RIBA Director of Inclusion, who has been working throughout her career as a journalist and leader with the personal work motto “giving the unheard voice a place to speak”. As a leader in Cultural Intelligence (CQ) in the UK, Marsha helps organisations deliver strategic inclusive change. Her approach tackles all agendas of under-representation, allowing for intersectionality to be effectively addressed across all areas of an organisation.


The event is a fundraiser (read about it in Eventbrite) for CRAS, the construction industry’s charity that helps homelessness and hospice organisations with their construction projects – creating places that care for people when they’re at their most vulnerable

RECENT NAWIC EVENTS

THANK YOU !
Can we have a cheer for the many who came to London Build last week! It was so wonderful to see so many familiar and new faces smiling, sharing insights, establishing meaningful contacts, and above all, completely immersed in helping and supporting each other, 

We loved it!
For those of you who could not join us, in 2021, the WIC breakfast was sponsored by DCC solutions whose CEO Jimi Clake welcomed attendees and shared great advice:
  • Firstly, in the context of recruitment, he reminded everyone that the key to recruiting diverse talent is to make sure companies are pitching to diverse talent.
  • Secondly, he spoke of a project called Funding Focus, which is focused on levelling the playing field by providing financial support to female and underrepresented businesses.
THANKING ALSO OUR PANELISTS AND FANTASTIC ATTENDEES
In 2021 London Build had a Diversity stage and hence since we have been speaking about EDI for such a long time, we decided to use the platform to showcase the impact fellow women are having in the industry.

The panelists were brilliant as was the discussion that followed. (below you will find some highlights from twitter)

We even had a group of young women, accompanied by their teachers, from the Sutton High School in the audience who loved learning about the industry and the impact the built environment is having on people.

NAWIC X BBU 

Also last week, we completed our two-part collaboration with Built By Us in the form of our Negotiation e-Seminars by Guy Johnson from BreakPoint Black.

There were many highlights but we have selected three lightbulb moments for you to consider the next time you need to negotiate:

  1. Everyone finds it easier to negotiate on behalf of others. Think of yourself as "you. inc" (a company of 1) when negotiating on your behalf
  2. Trading variables often have a different value for each party. Consider this when looking for a satisfactory outcome.
  3. There are two stages in the negotiation process: the sales part (when you persuade, rationalise, justify, explain, and talk) and the negotiation part (when you state, think, tell and listen). Make sure you understand when one ends and the other starts to increase your chances of success.
We were very grateful for the participation and honesty of all attendees and for the generosity of our speaker.

RIBA Radio

Now in Youtube

For the past week, Marsha Ramroop, RIBA Director of Inclusion and former BBC journalist, has hosted an incredible range of guests who have discussed topics related to Diversity and Cultural Intelligence and given truly useful tips to help us become culturally savvy. 

It has been incredibly enlightening and some of the recordings are already available on YT. If you are serious about changing the industry, make sure you listen to those.

In addition to the radio, Marsha has prepared a very useful whitepaper on behalf of RIBA to help organisations achieve their goals by bringing sustainable changes. The document covers teh following:

  1. How you attract people
  2. How you treat and progress your staff
  3. How you create the services and products of your business
  4. How you attract and treat your users/customers/audience/members.
