Each year, Inside Housing carry out a diversity survey to understand who holds the top jobs in the housing sector – this includes board members and executive team. The survey is intended to highlight best practice within the sector and highlight organisations that are representative and diverse.
This year, Homes for Lambeth topped the survey – with 75% of our executive team from a BME background, and 75% female.
Our chief executive, and member of Inside Housing’s race and housing editorial panel, Jitinder Takhar, said “I’m proud of the fact that our executive team is both gender and ethnically diverse, with 75% from a BME background and 75% female. This has a noticeable and positive impact on staff who can recognise themselves in our make-up and hopefully also has the same impact with the communities with whom we work.”
