20 October 2022

#RaisingTheRoof – It’s always such a privilege to be asked to contribute to a national conversation about equality, diversity and inclusion but when it’s in relation to a sector that are you passionate about and it’s with people with whom you have a great deal of respect then it’s so much more than a privilege! Our Director, Lucy Malarkey, was over the moon to be asked to be involved in the latest edition of the #RaisingTheRoof podcast about all things equality, diversity and inclusion.

Yorkshire Housing’s Chief Executive, Nick Atkin, hosts a quarterly #RaisingTheRoof podcast, covering a range of topical and relevant housing issues. The October edition was all about equality, diversity and inclusion and Lucy was joined by Akin Thomas, the CEO and Founder of AKD Solutions, to chat with Nick about how the discussion about EDI needs to change in the sector to ensure that in 40 years time we are not still having the same conversations.

Listen to the conversation with Lucy Malarkey (She/Her), Akin Thomas and Nick Atkin wherever you get your podcasts.
