AIA National: 2013 AIA Diversity Recognition Program

Application Deadline: February 6, 2013

AIA National is now accepting submissions for the 2013 AIA Diversity Recognition Program. The AIA Diversity Recognition Program celebrates and invites the contributions of AIA members toward the goal of a more diverse profession. Up to twelve submissions will be selected annually to be recognized as Diversity Best Practices. An award will be presented to each selected recipient, whose diversity efforts will be featured in AIA publications and on the AIA web site.

Submissions are due by February 6, 2013. Read more at AIA National.

The 2012 AIA Diversity Recognition Program recipient was AIA Dallas Latinos in Architecture. Jurors were most impressed with AIA Dallas Latinos in Architecture’s variety of programs and events; its three-pronged focus on education, the community, and the profession; and the relative ease that its initiatives could be duplicated in chapters and firms across the country. “The AIA Diversity Recognition Program showcases how different folks design the processes that meet their needs,” writes 2011 and 2012 juror Clarence Kwan, AIA. “Hopefully, others can learn from these examples and implement their own plans.”

Celi Sims, Assoc. AIA; Jan Blackmon, FAIA; Yesenia Blandon, Assoc. AIA; and Lorena Toffer, AIA; received the Diversity Recognition Program award on behalf of AIA Dallas Latinos in Architecture during the 2012 AIA National Convention in Washington, DC.
