Diversifying a Profession: An Opportunity for Change

2:00 pm – 3:45 pm

2020 has been a year of unprecedented global turmoil. Cultural, political and social rifts widen daily. Yet in many ways, the world is smaller than ever.

This year’s Landscape Institute Jellicoe lecture is devoted to discussing how we can best foster a diverse and inclusive landscape profession. Building a truly inclusive world is one of the foremost challenges of our age, and our profession should be as diverse and vibrant as the communities we serve.

The Landscape Institute (LI) is committed to embracing diversity: welcoming and progressing practitioners regardless of race, sex, sexuality, disability, or social background; acknowledging and addressing historic ties to inequality; and ensuring our work answers the needs of everybody and brings communities together.

Join our keynote speaker and Question Time-style expert panel to debate and discuss:

  • How structural discrimination and unconscious bias can profoundly affect life chances and career choices
  • The key issues we need to address to create a more inclusive landscape profession
  • What proactive steps individual practitioners can take to encourage positive change

Meet the speakers:

  • Diana Chrouch, Chair of National Policy, BAME Business for the Federation of Small Business
  • Jane Fortescue CMLI, Chair, Rainbow Places
  • Donald Roberts CMLI, Director, ETLA
  • Kush Kanodia, Director of Strategy, Kaleidoscope Group
