Programme Submissions Are Open

Bisnow launched The Rise Initiative in 2021 in the U.S. with a specific focus: to recognise organisations within the commercial real estate industry that are committed to improving diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI) by taking measurable actions. The inaugural programme highlighted organisations that set achievable DEI goals, measured their progress, and held themselves accountable. 

  

In its first year at an event in New York City, Rise recognised several organisations that set achievable DEI goals, measured their progress, and held themselves accountable. The Rise Initiative is now launching in the UK. If your company is making a quantifiable impact in its DEI efforts, submit your programme for consideration from now until 24 March. 

  

Submissions are reviewed by a steering committee and will be showcased at this premier event in summer 2023 in London. You can learn more about the Initiative and entry guidelines here.

  

We're excited to highlight, connect, and learn from the organisations and individuals leading the way for a more inclusive and stronger CRE industry. In addition to spotlighting these companies, we'll be hosting talks with expert panelists from all walks of the UK real estate community to give their take on the current market, share career advice, discuss innovative strategies to overcome challenges, and how to lead by example. Further details on the honouree event will be available soon, so be sure to check back here!
