Webinar Offered Today: Race in America – Creating a Shared Language
Posted Monday, June 29

Before we can address racial injustice and inequities in our community and the profession, we need to get comfortable talking about racism and its impact on our everyday lives. Join us for an open and honest conversation led by Dr. Kendall Nicholson, Ed.D, Assoc. AIA, NOMA. He’ll define common terms and provide historical context for current events. Hear about the lived experiences of people of color in the profession and better understand the obstacles they face. This free webinar in hosted by AIA Richmond and AIA Virginia.
