The AIA New Jersey Equity in Architecture Series Presents Equity in Career Advancement

Smart firms are taking the time to examine their workplace culture, office procedures and management attitudes to look for areas of inequity and opportunities to increase inclusion. This seminar is beneficial for all firms and individuals, including employees, managers and principals, even if you think everything is already working just right.  

This seminar offers employers and organizations ways to support the development of all employees, with an eye toward equity and inclusiveness, and calls attention to critical junctures commonly found in architectural careers. 

This two-hour seminar is based on the AIA Guides to Equitable Practice Chapter 7: Advancing Careers. AIA NJ Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Chair Stacey Ruhle Kliesch, AIA, past Women in Architecture chair, Carla Bonacci, AIA, and AIA NJ Architect of the Year, Paul Rugarber, AIA. will be presenting this Zoom webinar on Wednesday, July 29th, from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.
