AECs of Diversity. A = All inclusive, E = Equity, and C = Culture.
This panel session will address diversity in the A/E/C industries, offering a snapshot of the current state and why increasing diversity will bring benefits that extend far beyond the A/E/C industries and SMPS. The session will include the results of a short diversity survey of SMPS membership that was undertaken in early 2020 and an analysis of the results, which, alongside panelist best practices, will inform recommended tools and actions that we can apply in SMPS and other industry associations and in the companies where we work. We can make a difference by committing to increase diversity, instill equity, and change the culture of our organizations for a better future.
