Driving diversity within design firms, specifically the recruitment and retention of minority architects, is crucial not only to creating an inclusive workplace, but to building project teams that reflect the diversity of our clients and the people and communities that will be served by the spaces we create. The recognition and inclusion of talented individuals across the demographic spectrum is also one of the most critical factors to ensuring that our industry and our work continues to evolve and innovate well into the future.
