Join us for a panel discussion on diversity and equity in architecture that will revolve around the diversity of the profession itself and look at which communities the profession serves or neglects to serve.
National professional organizations like the American Institute of Architects and the Royal Institute of British Architects, in collaboration with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, have made great efforts to encourage minority populations to find a place in the field of architecture as a career path and as a community resource.
Representatives of these organizations will discuss current initiatives and opportunities.
