The AIANY Diversity and Inclusion Committee is seeking applications for new co-chair with the planned departure of one of the current co-chairs at the end of the year.

AIA New York’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee seeks to provoke a dialogue about diversity issues and give agency to issues of inclusion and representation. The profession is undergoing changes and faces enormous challenges with regards to climate change, energy consumption, and health needs. The practice’s shifting cultural landscape requires all of us to diversify. The local committee’s role works to match that of the Diversity & Inclusion Council at the National level. At the local level, we need to turn toward action items and ideas that articulate and promote diversity. 

Interested AIA members can apply by sending a copy of their CV and a 250-word cover letter outlining their interest in the committee, why they feel suited to lead it, and in what direction they hope to take it, to Joseph Corbin, Please specify which committee you are applying to in the subject line. The deadline to apply is Friday, December 18.
