AIA San Francisco Equity by Design (EQxD) Committee is proud to present our 5th Symposium, #EQxDV: Voices, Values, Vision. This year’s Symposium is our most anticipated gathering of committed champions and change agents from all over the United States and abroad to advance the movement for equitable practice and the future of architecture.

The framework for the #EQxDV Symposium program is defined by two anchors: presentation of the early findings of the 2018 Equity in Architecture Survey and active engagement in the form of panel discussions, break-out sessions, and networking opportunities. The Symposium weekend will launch on Friday evening with an opening reception and storytelling program.

#EQxDV marks the fifth anniversary of Equity by Design. This year’s Symposium theme, Voices, Values, Vision, builds on Equity by Design’s commitment to studying the root causes of a broken professional culture, creating just access for all, and giving everyone a fair chance to thrive.

  • Voices This year we commit to leveraging our platform to amplify all voices. To attract and retain diverse talent we must hear from those in practice and beyond.
  • Values This year we will explore how our core values guide us in choosing our collaborators, shaping our work culture, and cultivating our design leadership to make the most lasting impact within our communities.
  • Vision This year we will also look beyond our workplaces and build a vision of how equity in practice can inform our design work, aiding us in creating equitable outcomes, inclusive experiences, and dignified spaces.


Now is Our Time to Lead

We have come so far in our journey, yet we must go farther; our work is far from done. Working towards a just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive profession is a marathon, not a sprint. Each of us has an integral role to play: sharing our stories, advocating for our values, and paving a new path forward to shape the future of architecture. Together we are stronger. Will you join us?
