Recommendations from AIA’s Equity in Architecture Commission

Eleven priority recommendations to strengthen AIA’s commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion

The Equity in Architecture Commission—a blue-ribbon panel of leading architects, educators, and diversity experts—was formed in 2015 to address concerns about disproportionate demographics among those in the profession.

After 14 months of work, the Commission released a report with its recommendations for expanding and strengthening the commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion in every practice.

This executive summary addresses the five “keystone” areas of focus that were identified, and within those areas the 11 priority recommendations that were selected for implementation by AIA over the next three years.
