Join WiD + DRT for a series of group discussions on building a more equitable architecture industry in Seattle and beyond.
Despite increasing diversity in students and young professionals entering the field, architecture remains a remarkably homogeneous profession. How can we help retain more diverse voices in our profession? As practitioners, what can we do? Using topics and resources from the just-released AIA Guides for Equitable Practice, this event series is a recurring monthly, small group based discussion. Each month we will gather to discuss a different topic, and explore how we can promote equity, diversity and inclusion within our own firms.
