Equity, Diversity & Inclusiveness Task Force

We recognize that equity, diversity and inclusion are critical to developing a talented, high-performing industry.

But we need your help to create an environment that attracts, develops and retains individuals who are reflective of the clients they serve and the residents of our communities.

We are accepting applications to serve on this task force until Wednesday, July 11. You’ll help us research and develop an action plan to be presented to the board in November of this year.

Task Force Co-Chairs:

Emerging Professionals Committee

The 2018 Emerging Professionals Committee is charged with connecting architecture student, AIA Colorado associate members and members who have been licensed less than ten years with each other and with resources to support and advance their careers.

The 2018 voting roster for this committee has already been established, but you can still attend committee meetings as a guest and offer your perspective.

Government Affairs Committee

As we seek to empower architects to advocate on behalf of themselves and their profession, we hope you’ll join us. Whether you are very familiar with legislation and bills that affect architects, or would just like to learn more and share your perspective, the Government Affairs Committee is a great way to get involved and help us define our advocacy priorities.

Denver Housing Knowledge Community

Maybe you don’t have time right now to volunteer, but you are still passionate about issues facing our state and would like to connect with other members who share your interest. In that case, an AIA Colorado knowledge community may be just right for you.

The group is currently working closely with city officials and other housing advocates to find creative solutions for affordable housing.

Path to Licensure - ARE Prep Course

Have you recently taken an ARE 5.0 test? Are you willing to share tips for studying? Sign up here to participate in AIA Colorado’s Path to Licensure Series designed to prep members for taking ARE 5.0.

This seven session series will go over each of the ARE 5.0 tests, featuring a 30 minute to one hour Q&A for members to talk with other people studying for the test. Our goal is for the discussion to be led by a recent taker of the test covered that session – that’s where you come in!

Regional Urban Design Knowledge Community

The Regional and Urban Design Knowledge Community meets monthly to discuss issues related to the design of public spaces throughout the Denver Metro Area. Currently, the group is closely monitoring revisions to the city’s Land Use and Transportation Plan (Blueprint Denver) and identifying opportunities for members to get involved with placemaking initiatives in their neighborhoods.
