Will be hosted via Zoom

“Integrating Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) by Design,” will engage participants in considering how basic DEI concepts are defined and applied using examples from the built environment.

The session will include three segments:

  • reviewing working definitions of “diversity,” “equity” and “inclusion” that can be applied to the built environment and in other contexts;
  • considering examples of how DEI concepts are being applied (or implemented) through specific projects in the U.S.; and
  • discussing in small groups how DEI concepts are being (or might be) applied in New Hampshire.

Key take-aways:

(1) a deeper understanding of DEI concepts and why applying them with intentionality is essential for integrating DEI in the built environment;

(2) familiarity with actual DEI work underway in the built environment across the U.S.;

(3) ideas about how DEI concepts are (or might be) applied here in New Hampshire; and

(4) informational resources for further exploring DEI in the built environment.

Intended audiences:  planners, architects,  municipal leaders and staff, landscape architects,  traffic engineers, artists, and others who care about creating vibrant and delightful place to be for everyone.
