The AIA New Jersey Equity Lecture Series is preparing principals, project managers and staff to handle professional interaction with modern grace and ease. If you or your staff need a refresher on appropriateness in workplace culture, then this seminar is for you. This complimentary program is provided as an AIA NJ Member Benefit and made possible by the generosity of Garden State Tile. 

Workplace culture is the tacit—unspoken—social order of an organization, the shared patterns that determine what is viewed as appropriate behavior of individuals and the group and help us make meaning of our collective environment. Its implicit and explicit systems define how an organization works in practice, regardless of what is written policy or stated intent.
