This year, AIA San Francisco and The Missing 32% Project presents its 3rd symposium, Equity by Design: Knowledge, Discussion, Action! The day has been designed to combine data sharing and learning-by-doing, while experiencing the studio-like environment of the San Francisco Art Institute, one of the city's richest architectural assets. We will present the results of the Equity in Architecture Survey in panel discussions focused in 3 major knowledge sessions: Hiring & Retention,Growth & Development, and Meaning & Influence.
Break-out sessions follow each main knowledge session. You can choose from 3 relevant topics in each knowledge area that suits your professional needs. We will hear from thought leaders and then use our design thinking skills to generate creative solutions to the challenging practice issues that confront architects, emerging professionals, and firm leadership.
Our goal is to inspire and empower participants to generate actionable takeaways that will be collected and shared as Equity by Design [EQxD] Best Practice Guides as an open resource to transform the future of the profession.
