EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

 

ANNUAL EVENT FOR MEMBERS

2017
Our second annual event took place in November 2017, again with an invited audience of around 60 people.  Lucy Homer from Lendlease gave the keynote address.

At this event, we reviewed the findings of our research into gender diversity within organisations working in the built environment and launched The Equilibrium Network Charter: a check list for best practice.

We also ran a series of VoxPop questions: a light-hearted exercise but the results make interesting reading .  Most importantly for us, everyone who voted said that they would like to take part in the pilot scheme for The Equilibrium Network Charter.  If you too would be interested do take a look here.

2016
Our first event was held in November 2016 with an invited audience of around 60 people. At this event it was agreed that there was sufficient interest for us to develop The Equilibrium Network as a formal organisation.

FEMALE SPEAKERS FOR INDUSTRY EVENTS

Many conference organisers across the built environment sectors aim to achieve 50:50 women and men on their speaker lists and panel discussions. However, we are aware that it is often difficult for conference organisers to find female speakers and are happy to use our network to help.  If you are looking for speakers, please contact us.

ROUND TABLE DISCUSSIONS

2017
In the summer of 2017 we instigated a number of Round Table discussions with a wide audience working across the built environment, to review and discuss the first draft of The Equilibrium Network Charter.  Comments and suggestions from these Round Tables have informed the published Charter.

We will be setting up Round Table discussions on other topics – in particular the implementation of The Equilibrium Network Charter – in the coming months, bringing together Boards and senior players across the industry, to share stories and best practice.  If you would be interested in taking part,  please contact us.

OCCASIONAL DEBATES AND LECTURES

Information about debates and lectures will be posted here.

STRATEGIC ADVICE TO BOARDS AND INDIVIDUAL BOARD MEMBERS

We are a group of experienced, senior people, working across all aspects of the built environment.  Between us, we have a wealth of expertise and experience.  If your organisation would like to tap into this knowledge, please contact us.
