A'17 Equity by Design: Metrics, Meaning, and Matrices in Action [FR306]

  • orlando convention center (map)

Join us in Orlando, Florida for A'17 Conference on Architecture at EQxD Curated Collection's Premier event. We are bringing the Equity in Architecture Survey Findings and Actions to share with our national colleagues. 

Equity is the ethos of our work. It is the ability to recognize differences and provide fair access to opportunities. 

At this session, you'll review the results of the most comprehensive research on equity in architecture. You'll leave with strategies that promote equity via professional development and grassroots organizational change. As you'll see, it's in your firm's best interest. 

Equitable practice promotes the recruitment and retention of the most diverse talent while also building stronger, successful, sustainable practices. Using findings from AIA San Francisco's (AIASF's) 2016 Equity in Architecture Survey, you'll develop targeted strategies for promoting equity at various career milestones. 

Experience the power of action by committing to change as an individual, as part of your firm, and beyond.
