Sunday, November 17

Room 25 BC
Conference badge required
Members of the Black Landscape Architects Network (BLAN) will host a Diversity & Inclusion panel discussion that offers solutions to diversity, inclusion, and equity challenges within the profession and barriers faced by professional communities of color. The panel will provide a robust dialogue that explores the origination of the BLAN and obstacles faced by a minority group representing less than 1 percent of ASLA membership. Attendees will leave the session with clear strategies to recruit and retain emerging professionals within academic, private, and public practice, and opportunities to collaborate with the BLAN and other organizations to promote more blacks in the profession.
