Diversity Roundtable

Beginning three decades ago, the AIA Diversity Roundtable (DRT) is a group that elevates, inspires and empowers individuals of underrepresented backgrounds in the profession of architecture through scholarship, community service, and activism. The committee embraces and celebrates diversity in all its facets and strives to provide opportunities for an ever greater diversity of individuals to become registered architects, take advantage of leadership opportunities, and influence our practices and professional lives. We work diligently to highlight individuals and businesses whose work in architecture reflects and promotes inclusivity.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

The Diversity Roundtable meets, via Zoom, the first Tuesday of every month at 5:00pm at AIA Seattle. To receive upcoming meeting and event details, subscribe to our email list. AIA Seattle members, allied members and sponsors are encouraged to join as well as other professionals in the design community.

The Diversity Roundtable embraces and celebrates diversity in all its facets and strive to provide opportunities for an ever-greater diversity of individuals to become registered architects, take advantage of leadership opportunities, and influence our practices and our professional lives. The committee hosts the annual Solstice Celebration and awards the Marga Rose Hancock Endowed Scholarship for Diversity scholarship and the Denice Hunt K-12 Internship.
