Join the Boston Society for Architecture's Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Network, in conjunction with the International Living Future Institute's New England Collaborative and Built Environment Plus, for a lunchtime discussion of the JUST Transparency Label for organizations. The Just Label is a voluntary disclosure of personnel and workplace policies and realities aimed at increasing justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, and transparency in organizations. The discussion will highlight local architecture firms of different sizes, ranging from small (S) to large (L), who have received the Just 2.0 Label. Topics will include the effects of transparency within the firm, firm leaders’ roles, and many other topics. The discussion’s goal is to introduce the Just program to organizations that might be interested and open a dialog about what it takes to achieve a Just label and what it means for the firms that have gone through the process.

Firms represented in the discussion panel are DREAM Collaborative (S), PCA Design (M), Payette (L), and Buro Happold (XL)
