Meet the Speakers

Hilary Jeffery

Gender diversity in particular is a massive challenge facing the industry, leading to the development of a D&I strategy with this as its first focus. As hosts of this event, AECOM are also offering the unique opportunity to see how Aldgate Tower, opened in 2016, enables a first-class employee experience.
