In Pursuit of an Equitable Workplace

April 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Firms are striving for equity and inclusion in the workplace for many reasons: to ensure a sense of belonging for their employees, to attract talent that expands the firm’s offerings, and to compete in a marketplace that demands inclusivity. What certifications or frameworks should leadership pursue? How does accountability factor in months or years after goals have been set? Is tracking and reporting cumbersome to the work?

AFO’s panel of experienced leaders will discuss the implications for architecture firms exploring these questions. We will specifically focus on JUST, B-Corp, and the NOMA PDX Call to Action, including stories of realities versus expectations, challenges and benefits, and key learnings.

Hosted at PAE’s Living Building, this discussion is not to be missed!
