Associate Director, Chithra Marsh, has been appointed to two RIBA Committees; the new RIBA Standards Committee, and the RIBA North West Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, on which she will take up the role as Co-Chair.
The RIBA Standards Committee is one of just two new standing committees that will report directly to RIBA Council, and will set and oversee the core educational and practice standards of the RIBA.
The Standards Committee will oversee the administration of the conduct function for RIBA members and Chartered Practices. This covers a range of responsibilities including publishing the RIBA Code of Professional Conduct and RIBA Code of Practice, overseeing members’ compliance, and monitoring CPD requirements.
The RIBA North West Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee is a newly established committee for the region. The aim of the committee will be to help the RIBA, at regional level, promote and support a more diverse and inclusive architecture profession, representative of the society it serves.
Chithra commented: "I’m delighted to have been selected to support RIBA in these roles and have an opportunity to help curate a sustainable future for the profession. I’m looking forward to promoting a more diverse profession, setting professional standards, and shaping a future for the next generation.”
