This symposium will discuss the initial findings of the 2017 AIANY Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Member Survey and accompanying research. In 2017, the AIANY Diversity & Inclusion Committee received a Committee Excellence Grant from AIANY to fund a research study on equity, diversity, and inclusion in the architecture profession. A member survey, centered on determining education, representation, work-life balance, job satisfaction, and other data, was distributed to AIA New York members last summer.
The program will highlight strategies that organizations, firms, and individuals are implementing to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion within the profession of architecture. Discussion will center on examining the academic pipeline, the workplace, and research based stratagems for the future.
