JE:DI Task Force
The goal of this group is to provide guidance, advice and accountability. To survey everything we do at AIA Seattle through the lens of our EDI goals.
AIA Seattle is committed to identifying, naming, and dismantling systemic discrimination within the architecture community in order to nurture universal inclusion and fairness in the built environment, for the communities we impact, both locally and nationally.
WHAT WE DO
The JE:DI Task Force is a resource to the board, staff and committee leaders of AIA Seattle in the planning and execution of programs and services for AIA members and the public, as related to the topics of justice, diversity, inclusion and equity.
Goals and Areas of Action
- Access to the Profession
- Relationship Building
- Continuing Education Training
- AIA Seattle – The Organization
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Architects choose this profession out of a passion to make our communities better. Never has that urge been more important. We can and must act to make a difference — through our commitment to anti-racism, our design work, our intercultural understanding, our community leadership, and our workplace practices. We must begin by listening to the diverse communities we serve.
We accept the hard work ahead and take it on with humility. Please help us. Add to our learning and our dialogue with your thoughts and ideas. Speak up where you believe we should be better.
