#EQxDV marks the fifth anniversary of AIASF Equity by Design. Since 2013, we have made incredible strides towards equitable practice with three groundbreaking surveys that have launched a national movement in architecture and allied professions. In light of deep challenges and uncertainty within the profession, our communities, and the world, we remain steadfast and committed to our collective progress towards just and equitable practices to achieve diverse and inclusive outcomes.
Equity is the work of minimizing barriers to maximize our potential for success. We are focused on studying the root causes of a broken professional culture, creating just access for all, and giving everyone a fair chance to thrive. Working in collaboration with partners at all levels of practice, we will champion the difficult conversations and important work that still needs to be undertaken to further advancements in equitable practice and design impact.
We are grateful and indebted to our [EQxD] collaborators, sponsors, partners, and fellow equity champions for supporting the movement and this video. Special Thanks to Filmmaker Conor Hagen for the amazing talent and heartfelt collaboration to capture the highlights and essence of our collective work.
