Presented by


About this talk

In recent years, diversity has come a long way nationally and internationally. Current data suggests that we still face challenges to engage diversity with inclusion. Per recent reports, the architecture/construction sector still lags and in need to empower women, practice equity and promote diversity. This presentation will review national efforts for D&I - where we were and where we are now. We will try to understand the concept/forms of exclusion and how our efforts both at a personal level and professional level can eliminate it. Eventually, it is not about being a woman or a minority, it is about becoming aware of exclusive behavior and cultivating inclusive thoughts and actions. Takeaways: 1. Attendees will be able to understand the importance of inclusion & its relation to diversity. It is very easy to exclude. 2. Participants will learn about women in the field of architecture and construction, challenges we face and what the industry is doing to empower us. 3. We will discuss how to enhance relationships by valuing and respecting ethnic, cultural differences and accommodating different stages of lives we all are in.
