As architects, pitching for a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive design is not always easy and straightforward. This 2020 TORCH panel on social responsibility and community engagement will explore conversations between the client, the community, and the architect during the design process. The panel of Fellows will share their stories and personal experiences before joining virtual breakout rooms for intimate conversations with participants.

About the TORCH program:
The TORCH Mentorship program partners emerging professionals and AIA Fellows over the course of the year to share personal strategies and paths to success in the architecture profession. TORCH includes public panel discussions plus one-to-one mentor matching for a longer term discussion.
