We are delighted that Ibrahim Buhari is joining the RIBA Architects for Change (AfC) Advisory Group. Members of the RIBA Expert Advisory Groups use their expertise to inform RIBA responses to consultations, proactive campaigns as well as products and guidance to support the profession. Group remits range from representing a member constituency to providing technical expertise and advising the RIBA on client relationships.
Architects for Change is the RIBA’s advisory group for equality, diversity and inclusion. AfC strives to promote equality and diversity in the education and practice of architecture. It supports the RIBA in developing policies and activities aimed at promoting diversity and equal opportunities in the architectural profession.
Ibrahim joined Burrell Foley Fischer in 2013 where he completed his Part III studies, qualifying as an Architect in 2016. He has a particular interest in promoting diversity within the profession and acts a mentor with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, working with young people wishing to pursue a career in architecture or the built environment. He said “I fully support the RIBA’s commitment to diversity and believe that employment diversity will contribute positively to the effectiveness and influence of the architectural profession. The RIBA is as strong as its members and the richness of the profession lies with holding a diverse community which taps into the range of skills and experience that this can bring to the table. I’m looking forward to making a positive contribution to this through the Architects for Change group.”
