Culture Change in Practice: A Leadership Cohort 2023 | Workshop 1
AIA Seattle, in close collaboration with NOMA Northwest and Planning in Color, is proud to announce its third – and newly revitalized – edition of the Culture Change in Practice program.
This four-part, peer-based learning program was designed by a team of architects and allied professionals to specifically provide architecture and allied firms the tools and community to meet the explicit goals and metrics laid out in NOMA NW’s Call-to-Action.
The first workshop of Culture Change in Practice: A Leadership Cohort 2023 is scheduled for Friday, September 15, 9:00am-12:00pm PT, in person at DLR Group (51 University St #600).
Workshop 1: Power and Privilege
September 15, 9am-12pm PT | In-Person @ DLR Group (51 University St #600)
We will get to know one another in this session, and learn about the equity journeys of the firms represented. What are some of the general barriers to equity work? How might we handle discomfort in productive ways? How does a deeper awareness of our positionality in relation to others help us develop a responsibility toward stewardship, especially as leaders in our firm? This first workshop will explore what exactly equity stewardship looks like, especially since some firm leaders’ life experiences might look quite different from those on whose behalf they are advocating.
