Description

We are delighted to announce the launch of the 2017 FLUID Diversity Mentoring Programme and to be celebrating the 5th year of the programme! Building the success of previous years we are hoping that 2017’s programme will be even bigger and better.

We are inviting applications from potential mentors and mentees from every sector of the construction industry and from all career levels, from recent graduates to company Directors and Partners.

As with previous, years, we would particularly like to support and encourage applications from women, BME and LGBT professionals, professionals with disabilities and those from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

If you are interested in learning more about the FLUID programme or would like to opportunity to meet some of FLUID’s alumni of wonderful mentors and mentees, please join us for our 2017 launch event at the RIBA when we shall be celebrating the successes and sharing some of the stories from our class of 2016.

The launch will take place on Wednesday 27th September from 6.00pm at the RIBA, 76 Portland Place, London.
