The topics of equity and diversity are being widely discussed within the profession of architecture as firms and practitioners struggle with acquiring and retaining talent. At a time when action is needed to respond to changing demographics, the Equity in Architecture Survey, led by Rosa Sheng, AIA, provides insights to the state of professional practice and begins a conversation about the value of equity to architects. To date, this national survey is the largest and most comprehensive study on the topic of talent retention within architecture.

The AIANY Diversity and Inclusion Committee and AIANY Women in Architecture Committee are pleased to welcome Rosa Sheng, AIA, for an in-depth discussion of the findings from the 2016 Equity in Architecture Survey.
