Diversity and Inclusivity

12.04.18

Scott Brownrigg actively promotes diversity and accessibility within the industry. We believe in inclusivity at every level regardless of gender, ethnicity or socio-economic situation. It is essential to our culture and business growth. Diversity is not one dimensional.

We believe a more diverse and inclusive workforce can increase performance, innovation, reputation and staff motivation and this is demonstrated by our 248 staff who come from 33 different countries working worldwide.

Our culture is one where talent at all levels is recognised, nurtured and rewarded, and whilst at present, the current Strategic Board is all male, this has not always been the case and is unlikely to be so in the future. We have created a gender-balanced organisation, 29% of our shareholders and 44% of our Operations Board are female. These women directly influence the shape of our business. 45% of the organisation is female with more women in senior positions than ever before and these figures will continue to improve towards a position of parity.

We are committed to training and development. It is fundamental to our business strategy as we nurture the leaders of the future. The business has introduced initiatives such as enhanced maternity and paternity packages, flexible working, mentoring and training programmes. Our dedicated HR team and staff forum monitor diversity across the business and promote initiatives to support all staff during their long-term careers with the practice.

Scott Brownrigg has a practical and pragmatic approach to supporting the next generation and making architecture accessible to all. We lead the Architecture Apprenticeship Trailblazer process, are members of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust Advisory Board, are a founding member of the new London School of Architecture and support key initiatives such as the RIBA Future Architects campaign, the Helen Hamlyn Inclusive Spaces Award, the AR Emerging Architects Award Programme and the AR Women in Architecture Programme.
