Lorri Holding will join regular virtual meetings to help improve the housing sector magazine’s understanding and coverage of diversity in all its forms, particularly B.A.M.E matters facing those who live and work in social housing.  The panel will be working closely to develop topics and story content, closely linked to lived experiences in the UK today, we aim to work with the magazine to deliver an effective Inclusive Futures agenda. 

Lorri said: “I’m very proud to be involved with Inside Housing’s inaugural BAME editorial panel. Equality and diversity issues have too long been pushed onto the back burner, it’s hard for some to acknowledge and even more difficult for others to accept that now is the time for us to come together and actively work for long awaited change.  It’s good to know that our sector is ready to work to address the issues of BAME people and increase knowledge outside of the BAME community. I can’t wait to get started.” 

Inside Housing editor Martin Hilditch said: “As our own research has shown, there is still a significant problem with structural inequality in the housing sector. The purpose of the panel is to improve our own coverage of diversity, providing ideas for stories and research, and challenging Inside Housing and holding us accountable for delivery. 

“The 11 panel members bring a range of experience to the table, working in a variety of different roles for a mix of organisations, and I look forward to working with them to drive Inside Housing’s coverage moving forward.”
