The duty of those who shape our cities is to include every voice, design for universal human dignity and advocate for lasting change. Yet despite the progress we’ve made, inequity
The duty of those who shape our cities is to include every voice, design for universal human dignity and advocate for lasting change. Yet despite the progress we’ve made, inequity in the built environment is still prevalent—and we are committed to creating change.
In a statement made by AIA Colorado CEO Mike Waldinger, “Architecture is not neutral. Neither can architects be passive.” In this Virtual Connect event, we invite participants to learn more about racial inequity in architecture and design as we hear from leaders in the profession via a panel discussion. Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions and will join us in confronting the profession’s shortcomings and removing barriers for our BIPOC peers.
People of color should not be afraid to walk into a building. Join us for the discussion as we fight together to eradicate racial injustice in our profession and turn words into action.
