Session nine: Building back better with a more diverse and inclusive sector chaired by Martin Hilditch, editor, Inside Housing
How do we continue to build on some of the good work that the sector is doing to spotlight new and diverse voices across all disciplines? And therefore attract more and more of the so far unseen and unheard to identify what communities want and need. Let's harness the passion of those who really want to affect change, share and welcome their stories and their expertise to build back better.
