Imagine…A future where increased diversity in the workplace brings more ideas, different perspectives, and unique solutions, all which speak to an improved profession. Imagine the impact it would have on our firms and our clients.

Be ahead of the curve as the AEC industry faces these issues. Join us for this exciting discussion on ways AEC professionals can navigate the conversation. 

The need for diversity and inclusion is everywhere – in RFP’s, in language we use to promote our firms, in values our clients espouse.  Everyone is biased. Our brains are continually making quick judgments of people and situations. These minute assessments are influences by our background, cultural environment, and personal experience. Known as unconscious bias, these micro-decisions have tremendous impact on our workplace and our industry.

Learning objectives

  • Identify prevalent types of unconscious bias
  • Assess what firms are championing through diversity and inclusion programs
  • Qualify new roles for marketing staff as firms diversify
  • Implement strategies to mitigate the effects of unconscious bias
