AIA RUDC will bring four virtual panels with continuing education learning units in 2023. Join us for our series exploring and defining equity and social impact in the communities we study, engage, and design to develop professional practice.
The third panel, “Coalitions for Equity within the Built Environment,” will be held October 24, 2023, from 1-2:30pm, ET. Redlining and blockbusting have been outlawed for over 50 years. However, in contemporary transportation and environmental design, zoning and building practices, as well as community engagement implementation, we continue to see its systemic and harmful legacy through “seen” and “unseen” inequitable practices. This panel seeks to identify how these practices are leading to greater displacement and residential segregation due to gentrification for historically vulnerable communities, while also discussing what plans of action we need to take in designing more equitable cities across scale.
Interested in attending the free live session? The registration link for the AIA University (AIAU) platform will be coming soon, via our October newsletter and LinkedIn page. Stay tuned!
