We’re delighted that the RE―SET―GO programme, which is led by We Made That, IF_DO and Gort Scott, and supported by the London Practice Forum, has won the Diversity in Action category at the first ever Inspire Future Generations Award at the Thornton Educational Trust awards.
Backed by funding from Stride, the initiative has provided work placements, mentoring and CV workshops for more than 150 young people from under-represented backgrounds in south London.

According to the Thornton Educational Trust, successful entries must demonstrate how they have made a tangible impact on closing the gap between architecture and education, through activity, collaboration or research.
“As employers, we have the tools to directly address the structural issues of lack of diversity within the industry. Under-represented individuals setting out on a career path in the architecture profession can benefit from the experience and support that this programme can offer. It is this drive for action that has motivated us to develop the RE—SET—GO initiative with the support of Stride.”Holly Lewis, Co-founding Partner, We Made That
