Open letter to the AJ

The Stephen Lawrence Architecture Advisory Board (SLAAB) supports our Race Diversity Survey, with an open letter to the Architects Journal.

Foster + Partners and Stirling Prize-winners Haworth Tompkins are among a number of top practices ’wholeheartedly’ backing the campaign to tackle race diversity in architecture.

We are gathering evidence on diversity in the industry with a landmark survey launched last month.

The survey is open to everyone, regardless of race or ethnicity, and asks questions about experiences in the industry.

’We are delighted that this initiative will shine a spotlight on what needs to be done to understand and tackle issue around equality, inclusion and diversity in UK architecture as well as encouraging talented young people of all backgrounds to join our profession,’ the letter read.

Open letter

In April we will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the murder of Stephen Lawrence, a talented young man who wanted to become an architect.

It came to our attention in 2017 that there was a dearth of information relating to the lack of diversity in the built environment, so we set about beginning to address this issue by creating a Survey in partnership with the AJ to begin to capture the data, both quantitative and qualitative.

We are delighted that this initiative will shine a spotlight on what needs to be done to understand and tackle issue around equality, inclusion and diversity in UK architecture as well as encouraging talented young people of all backgrounds to join our profession.

Within our role as advisory board to the Trust, we back this campaign wholeheartedly and encourage all to participate, regardless of race or ethnicity.
