Equity in Licensing: Discussions on the Current Process to Licensure

September 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We will explore the comments from the Dean of Architecture at Princeton University and her theories that licensure is a roadblock to equity in the Architecture industry. We will explore ways to increase diversity at the leadership level of our licensing organizations and its effects on the lack of diversity of licensed architects.
