Lourdes Solera (thank you) suggested setting up a scholarship fund to promote diversity in our profession in lieu of spending money on a New York Times Ad and further asked how to get it started. The structure is already in place to make a meaningful difference with your dollars. The Architects Foundation has a dedicated Diversity Advancement Scholarship fund that provides financial support to students to further diversity in our profession. A meaningful donation to that fund is the best way for Fellows to leverage your dollars to support diversity in our profession. The link to donate is: https://architectsfoundation.org/donation/ Fellows – please flood them with generous (repeat, generous) donations!
