Housing sector leaders promote leadership diversity

A group of leaders from the housing industry met for the first-time last week to discuss how to improve diversity across the sector.

The Leadership 2025 Advisory Board has been established to support housing associations to implement the five recommendations of the Leadership 2025 Review on creating a more diverse sector, and to monitor their progress.*

At this inaugural meeting, the Mayor of London’s Office confirmed its commitment to ensuring that the capital’s housing sector can draw on the talents of people from the widest possible range of backgrounds.

The Board includes:

Gina Amoh (Chair) – Chief Executive of Inquilab HA and Chair of BME Landlords London.
David Montague – Chief Executive, L&Q
Jamie Ratcliff – Assistant Director of Housing, GLA
Shaun Scantlebury – Director, EY People Advisory Services
Elly Hoult – Chair, CIH Futures
Emma Maier – Editor, Inside Housing

And is supported by Altair Specialist Housing Consultants.

The Board will meet on a quarterly basis over the next year to consider how the sector can ensure that best practice, from both within and beyond housing, is truly embedded in housing association practices.
