SPACE+ and BWRE announce new collaboration to address under-representation


[London, 17th November, 2021] SPACE+, the leading organisation for progressive property leaders, has today announced a new collaboration with BWRE - the industry group for Black Women in Real Estate.


The collaboration will see BWRE lead discussions and content around diversity and inclusion at SPACE+ events.


"As an industry, we have a responsibility to be reflective of the communities we impact and serve,” says Hanna Osundina, BWRE's founder. “There are many ways in which our industry falls short of their responsibility, but we at BWRE want to start by addressing the issue of under-representation of diversity by creating spaces for Black Women to connect, empower one another and grow our reach and influence through a combined voice.”


Starting at SPACE UK on 30th November, BWRE will lead an open forum discussion to help delegates understand not only the business case for greater diversity, but also insight into recruitment and retention of talent.


Hanna Osundina, Development Director at Balfour Beatty Investments, will Host the discussion, alongside CBRE's Rim Adem and Countryside's Faith Locken. They'll be joined by industry leaders outside of the BWRE community, including The Crown Estate's Head of Strategy, Rob Chesworth.


Already committed to a minimum of 50% female Speakers, Host & Co-Hosts, SPACE+ continues its mission to help the property industry accelerate its modernisation.


"BWRE can be a powerful voice in the property industry. We're delighted to share the SPACE+ platform with organisations who can have such a meaningful impact," says Rob Marten, founder of SPACE+.


The collaboration sees BWRE members joining SPACE+, the hosting of private dinners with industry leaders, and the co-creation of content.
