Diversity in Design: An Architecture Matters panel discussion

The recent Architecture Matters article in Soapbox, Diversity in Design, addressed the barriers to a diverse architecture profession, what’s being done to address it, and why people outside of the profession should care. To continue the discussion, architects representing a range of backgrounds and experiences will have an interactive conversation to dive deeper into topics touched on in the article. Questions from the audience will also be addressed throughout the program.

If you’re curious about how a diverse design team improves the built environment and what you can do to encourage more diverse design professionals, this is the program for you. Register here and join us to learn more.
