Building a 21st century professional body through championing diversity, equity and inclusion.
Now, more than ever, there is a moral and an economic imperative to embrace and embed equity in society and in the workplace. The built and natural environments are critical in delivering environmental and social justice.
We aim to be an accountable and influential leader, regulator and employer that understands and adapts to global cultures and the wealth of experience that diversity brings whilst ensuring that RICS employees, members and firms value and embrace a culture of belonging.
Upon a framework of commitment, value and governance, RICS can and will help to shape an inclusive profession where everyone can thrive, realise their potential and deliver positive social impact.
