Richard Allitt makes pledge to never take part in male-only panels

Managing Director of RAA Ltd, Richard Allitt has made the pledge to never take part in all male panels or speaker line ups.

A regular speaker at water and drainage industry events, Richard has long been an advocate for equality in the workplace which is backed up by the current 50:50 ratio of males to females in the team.

The pledge which can be signed up to at www.owen.org states: “At a public conference I won’t serve on a panel of two people or more unless there is at least one woman on the panel, not including the Chair.”

Richard, in making this pledge, follows in the footsteps of other leaders in the flood and water sectors such as John Curtin of the Environment Agency and Terry Fuller of CIWEM.
