A New Model for Race and Gender Equity – Neba Sere

New Models is a lecture series that invites practitioners from different disciplines to discuss how their work can change the models around which society is organised. These conversations will address how we can shift power structures, socio-economic forces and structural inequalities present in society today to give us new tools to rethink the world around us.​

This lecture will describe the beginnings and journey of membership and advocacy organisation Black Females in Architecture in their quest to hold the built environment industry to account and to improve gender and racial equity.

Neba Sere is an architect, a lecturer at the Bartlett, UCL and a co-director of Black Females in Architecture. She led on design & construction projects with young people at Build Up Foundation, and was formally one of six young trustees of the Architecture Foundation. Her interest lies in understanding the process of decolonising the architecture profession and thus the built environment, specifically looking at how citizen-led initiatives can have a long term impact on the spaces we inhabit, and involving young communities in the regeneration process of their city through advocacy and outreach.
