CBE Advice Desk
The Council for the Built Environment’s third Transformation Indaba, hosted in October 2019, produced a number of key resolutions, in relation to challenges impeding Transformation in the sector. The CBE expects to deliver on these resolutions to ensure transformational progress. The main vehicle for driving these activities is the Transformation Collaborative Committees (TCCs), constituted in collaboration with the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI) to specifically address these challenges. These TCCs, with support from the DPWI, are commissioned to engage with all relevant departments and industry role players to resolve key challenges identified by stakeholders.
The Women Empowerment and Gender Equality Transformation Collaborative Committee (WEGE TCC) is specifically focused on issues of women empowerment, gender equality and inclusivity within the Built Environment Professions. One of these TCCs objectives is to have a Gender, Youth and Persons with Disabilities Advice Desk operational at the CBE with consideration of other role players involved on issues affecting youth, women and people with disability.
The intended purpose of this advice desk is:
- To provide a central point of contact for industry related requests for advice or guidance on queries and complaints relating to gender, youth or persons living with disabilities within the Built Environment.
- To direct any received complaints to the appropriate channels and to ensure that they are addressed.
- To establish a database on the nature and frequency of requests for advice and complaints received to inform and advise relevant stakeholders.
