This session will be a panel of leading industry experts in the fields of technology, design, and construction who will share their stories and insights on how diversity and inclusion will drive transformational change for our industry. We'll focus on why diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) are so important for your business and organization, how diversity and inclusion drive innovative results, and how leadership can directly play a role in cultivating a culture of equity and inclusion. The panelists will describe their personal journeys as minorities, and share their stories of leading DE&I initiatives in their organizations and communities. Our panel aims to continue to bring awareness to challenges to improve diversity, and identify strategies for increasing DE&I. We will also discuss how to overcome resistance to change, what a potential road map to DE&I excellence could look like, and what the future of the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry looks like with a more inclusive culture.
