Quadrangle Emerging Leaders Network presents ‘Engaging Change’

  • Published on: Aug 11, 2020

Event Date : August 26 2020, 6pm-7:30pm

Join architecture and design firm Quadrangle for a live panel discussion with four panelists and a moderator on systemic racism in architecture and design.

The event will draw on the experiences of each panelist and what they have seen as systemic racism in the industry. Areas of discussion will include unconscious bias in a professional practice, systemic racism through the education of architecture and design, and Black female representation within the industry.

While the news has been shining a negative light on terrible events that have happened, the event aims to create a positive yet balanced approach around a discussion about Black representation in the AEC industry and educate the leaders of tomorrow.

Quadrangle hopes to be a leader in raising awareness with this event and have a discussion on the framework for the much needed change towards this social issue.
