Equality Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace: An Urgent Business Strategy for Sustainability

Equality Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace: An Urgent Business Strategy for Sustainability

November 27, 2020 | 11:00am CST

This focused lecture will be guided with visual support and followed by breakout rooms for participants to network and learn from each other, as well as a question and answer period.

With the state of the construction industry (and of the world), this is a critical opportunity to put equity and inclusion at the centre of how we make decisions in and lead our practices. There is a new normal emerging and, as leaders, it is time to strengthen our inclusive leadership resolve and impact both in our practices and in the profession.

This focused lecture will present key learnings to help leaders of architectural practices navigate these uncertain times and make inclusive decisions toward more equitable workplaces and profession.

Governor General’s Medals in Architecture and Governor General’s Medal in Landscape Architecture

December 8th, 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET

The Governor General’s Medals in Architecture recognize outstanding achievement in recently built projects by Canadian architects. This program—created by the RAIC—contributes to the development of the discipline and practice of architecture and increases public awareness of architecture as a vital cultural force in Canadian society. These awards are administered jointly with the Canada Council for the Arts.

The Governor General’s Medal in Landscape Architecture (GGMLA) is the highest honour bestowed on a landscape architect by the CSLA. The medal intends to honour exceptional landscape architects, whose lifetime achievements and contributions to the profession have had a unique and lasting impact on Canadian society.

The celebration will be presented virtually by the RAIC, Canada Council for the Arts, and CSLA.
