Discussing Diversity in Architecture

Richey Madison, Christner’s Business Development Manager, was invited to be a roundtable panelist discussing diversity in the architectural profession at the 2009 AIA Central States Region conference.  Panelists addressed topics including:

  • How diversity has had a positive impact on their workplace.
  • Does diversity just happen or must it be actively pursued?
  • How far has architecture come towards being a diverse and inclusive profession?

Richey was in good company - other participants included Luis Rico-Gutierrez, Dean of the College of Design at Iowa State University, and Wendy Ornelas, FAIA, Professor and Associate Dean at Kansas State University.
