Equity, diversity, and inclusion are fundamental to the values reflected in our code of professional ethics and must be fostered throughout our organization, the profession, our workplaces, and communities. We strive to cultivate a sense of safety and belonging for all individuals while creating an atmosphere of deep collaboration that cuts across demographic and hierarchical lines.

When designers come together to change the systems that perpetuate violence and cruelty, we will harness our energies to create more just, equitable, and inclusive communities. We must work together as a community and through our practice to change these systems. We do not have the answer, but we will not stop until there is no longer a question of whether we live in a just world.

There are many steps still to be taken, but the BSA EDI Resources page is a start to educate ourselves and be aware of the challenges at hand.
