The Young Architects Forum

The webinar will provide a platform for the ongoing dialogue and support for historically underrepresented individuals in architecture. As the profession works towards greater equity and inclusion, YAF advocacy work group is focusing on amplifying and showcasing an array of work from emerging and established leaders rooted in designing a built environment in which all feel a sense of belonging.

Attendees will hear from a diverse group of architects and designers who are committed to design that addresses the unfortunate realities of the past and works towards a more equitable future. The panelists will share their background, vision, project samples, and insights in why consideration for belonging and the varied perspectives and needs of individuals is imperative for architects and their communities. Attendees will learn various methods of incorporating equity in their practice and daily lives.

The panelists will expand on how and why architects should take on a leadership role in their communities and advocate for spaces where all may thrive. This session will have ample Q&A time, allowing for attendees to engage with the panelists.
