About People Wiki
Building People is a hub for equity, diversity and inclusion in construction and the built environment.
We are a social enterprise that doesn't believe in duplication of effort and is committed to collaborative working.
This People Wiki is where we are bringing together fragmented industry resource, making it easier for people to find information and content specific to the Built Environment, with a focus on skills and careers, diversity and inclusion, and social value.
Why Building People?
The problem: The UK needs to build, but there is a shortage of competent and experienced workers, and the workforce we have lacks diversity.
The solution: Building People is a free-to-use platform that brings together careers opportunities with a ‘network of networks’, enabling people to find built environment careers support, and industry to connect with a more diverse range of talent.
Our mission is to improve representation across the built environment by enabling and empowering a collaborative movement for inclusive change.
