In my shoes is a CIH presidential campaign, by Lara Oyedele, that seeks to raise awareness of the importance of racial diversity in the housing sector, drawing on Lara’s lived experience of the housing sector and racial adversity. The campaign will challenge the lack of ethnic and racial diversity in the boardrooms of housing organisations, providing a catalyst to galvanise positive change.
The campaign will amplify conversations and awareness, by sharing resources, engaging in conversations and sharing a wide variety of lived experiences, #inmyshoes, to create a momentum where racial and ethnic diversity are consistently on the agenda to drive forward positive change.
The campaign will run throughout Lara's presidency from October 2022 to September 2023.

Lara Oyedele | CIH president
It’s my motivation to inspire change and champion the importance of racial and ethnic diversity in the housing sector, especially in our boardrooms. We all know more needs to be done in this space and I want to work with CIH, its members, and the wider sector to highlight why it’s important to create a fair and inclusive environment where every individual feels confident not only that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional harm but also that they and their life experiences will be valued.
