Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: Equity in This Moment - Becoming an Ally (CE)
June 2
12:00-1:30p


Co-hosted by AIA Potomac Valley and AIA Northern Virginia Women in Architecture.

Equity is at the forefront of our national narrative. We look at equity within the field of architecture with questions that relate to pay and hiring, but also as an opportunity. By increasing diversity within our offices, we can best leverage our practices to be prepared as federal, state and even local standards are upgraded due to the discussion of equity. We can bring a wide variety of perspectives to the work we do with a greater degree of diversity and inclusion. With that in mind and to support our commitment to equity, health, and wellbeing, we will host a virtual session providing an opportunity to learn about identity-based inequities, to discuss their impacts, and to explore what we each can do to combat oppression and injustice.
 
This online event is a 90-minute interactive session that will take a deep dive into equity issues. Attendees will gain greater understanding of, and tools to address, these issues. The session will include an overview, whole group reflections, breakout sessions, and a closing dialog.

Features Natalie S. Burke, President and CEO of CommonHealth ACTION.
