Do you want to boost your confidence in understanding how to navigate the architecture employment process and how to identify a firm’s EDI attitudes and initiatives during interviews? Before jumping on just any firm’s payroll, this session will help you strategize questions that identify how firms are actively addressing employee engagement, bias, and diversity in the workplace, or effectively uncover any potential red flags.

Attracting and retaining talent is vital for every firm and the profession as a whole. Given the importance of developing a strong, knowledgeable, and empathetic workforce, firms are taking tactical steps to address belonging and shift workplace culture to ensure their workplace is both equitable and inclusive. Join AIA, firm leaders and fellow early career professionals to learn how to best leverage the AIA Guides for Equitable Practice as a resource in identifying positive qualities within a firm's practice and workplace culture.
