Equity in Design

Template requesting action from your firm

The built environment upholds the values of society. It is time to reassess those values and address how is architecture and design implicit in systemic racism. 

Only 2% of licensed architects in the US are black, and only 6% of graduating designers and architects.   It is time to create a more diverse industry so we can build a more equitable future..
