Improving & Promoting Wellbeing & Diversity in Construction & Property Conference

January 11, 2022 | USA

Worker wellbeing in the construction industry has rarely been out of the headlines over the past few years - and rightly so - and that's why we're committed to running a free-to-attend virtual event focused on EDI and Wellbeing every six months. And there are many challenges to overcome - from long hours, extended times working away from home, temporary and precarious nature of many projects, diversity challenges, the - macho culture and more have all contributed. Enjoy some networking time with those also attending the conference and visit the exhibitors - with the ability to video chat with attendees, enter the speed networking area or visit the booths of our sponsors. When it comes to diversity on boards in the built environment sector, it is proven that disability comes in a poor fourth behind gender, age and ethnicity. While the issue of women[s representation on boards has gained real traction in policy and practice over the last decade or so, there does not seem to be any similar movement for disabled representation. We will hear from industry leaders on this issue and how we may overcome it. During the break period you[re able to move around the event - with a speed networking area to allow you to video chat at random so get your elevator pitch ready.

Historically, the choice between renting or buying a home has been a tough decision. Looking at the percentage of income needed to rent a median-priced home today (29.2%) vs. the percentage needed to buy a median-priced home (15.8%), the choice becomes obvious. Every market is different. Before you renew your lease again, find out if you can put your housing costs to work by buying this year!
