The Sustainability of Us: A New Imperative for Diversity & Inclusion to Realize a Healthy Net Zero Carbon World
Lisa Bate, B+H Architects
We live in a world defined by constant change impacting how we build and operate our cities and communities. Critical disruptors are urging us to rethink how we design our urban spaces and power our buildings and infrastructure. In this presentation, we’ll explore the role diversity and inclusion play within the creation of holistic and transformative solutions designed from the outside in and the inside out. We’ll also talk about how we can create a more diverse and inclusive culture within our industry to ensure the design of purposeful, future-flexible, and resilient urban spaces, cities, and communities.
