Creating a Diverse and Inclusive Landscape Industry
The SGD has joined a number of signatories on a new Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Charter for the Horticulture, Arboriculture, Landscaping & Garden Media profession. The Charter confirms the Society's commitment to breaking down barriers in the industry and increasing access and progression for all.
Darryl Moore, the Council Member for Education, Diversity and Inclusion, who has been working alongside Co-Chair Lynne Marcus MSGD and sister organisations including the RHS, BALI and HTA on the Charter, said:
"This is a welcome start to creating a diverse and inclusive landscape industry. It is great to see all the major organisations within the sector collaborating, sharing knowledge, experience and resources. Working together is the only way we can ensure that we can address barriers to full participation within our professions in order to reflect the reality of wider society, and to be able to draw on a greater diversity of perspectives, which will surely enhance and enrich our industry. The Charter is the first step in our collective journey towards a more positive and equitable future."
