Transform the way you work, from the inside out.
Pathways to Equity (P2E) an interactive program designed to introduce you to methods for equity in practice, historical and systemic racism within the built environment, self-reflective, and community building practices, and strategies for community engagement.
CURRICULUM AT A GLANCE
Our curriculum is designed as a whole experience that builds on each learning module. We prioritize creating community throughout our time together. Sessions with guest facilitators include interactive workshops, self-reflective exercises and community building activities. They fall into the following modules:
AND SYSTEMIC CONTEXT
What are the histories of injustice and racism in architecture and design fields, and how can we play a role in changing those patterns?
What are tactics and tools for a community-based practice? How can equity be both a means and an end?
How do your personal identities affect your work and collaborations?
How can we implement community design principles into practice? What are best practices of community engagement in these turbulent times?
P2E is for you if you...
Want to be part of a like-minded and diverse community of practitioners.
Hope to learn how to design with not for.
Feel called to interrogate the harm that design fields have caused communities that are Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).
Value space for slowing down to self-reflect.
Seek to align your professional life with your personal principles.
