Seeking Equity & Diversity in Our Built Environment

SDAF is proud to be partnering with SdNOMA again, this time to address an important issue in the design community: only 2% of licensed architects are black. Join us for "Overcoming the 2%: Seeking Equity and Diversity in our Built Environment" where we will hear from Melina Aluwi, Philicia Harris, Jamie Intervalo, Mathew Picardl, and Joseph Ruiz Tapia, about why this disparity exists and what we need to do to change it.
