As we seek to create a more inclusive built environment, it is evident that greater strides must be taken to diversify the design teams behind the work. Higher educational institutions in both the public and private sector have been working toward more inclusive designer selection processes through a host of initiatives. Understanding how design teams can meet and further advance these initiatives will enable a multifaceted response that will advance inclusivity within our field and ultimate design outcomes.

Join us for the first conversation in a series to tackle issues of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion through innovative policy changes, organized by the BSA's EDI Task Force/Advocacy Group. Leaders from both private institutions and public agencies—DCAMM, MSCBA, UMBA, Northeastern University, and Wellesley College—will discuss current and aspirational policies and how AEC practitioners can advocate for more inclusive measures within our design teams.
