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.
