EQxD Sponsorship - 2018
We have ambitious plans for our 5 year anniversary! If you have been inspired by our research, knowledge and engagement programs in the past, we ask for your support in 2018 to further our ambitious goals for equitable practice in architecture. If you are a firm leader, this is an investment in the professional development and retention of your staff. If you are a staff person, this is a leadership opportunity to champion relevant information about talent retention and success to your firm.
Please consider sponsoring one (or more!) of the Equity by Design Initiatives in 2018 which is generously budgeted and funded through AIASF Sustaining Sponsorship program.
Early Bird Sponsors for 2018 Include:

EQxDHackathon at A'18 Conference on Architecture in NYC
These are extraordinary times for our country and also our profession. Now more than ever, Architects need to be agile, open-thinking change agents while articulating core values and advocating for just living environments that our communities need and deserve. Future architects will need to develop "HACK" skills in order to adapt with the hyper-rapid speed of today's technology advancements. We recognize the need to engage all generations of professionals in this discussion. Our 4th EQxDHackathon will fund 10 Scholarships for Students, Emerging Professionals and Young Architects in this year's topic "The New Urban Agenda".

Equity by Design Symposium #5
In 2018, we will celebrate our 5th Anniversary as we continue to advance in our goals. The conversation that began as an exploration of the “missing 32%” and the lack of women leaders in architecture has become an international movement with a much broader depth. In our 5th national signature event, we will explore Equity's impact in the designed and built environment with the potential to improve the quality of life, resiliency, and successful outcomes for our communities.
