Students, faculty, and practitioners are invited to a workshop on Equity in Design Research and Practice on Friday, May 20 at noon EST on Zoom.  


This critical workshop and discussion invite participants to voice their thoughts on how to rethink research and practice agendas and systems toward better equitable and supporting environments. 


Guest presenters include Menna Agha, Honoure Black, Lancelot Coar, Shawn Bailey, and Julia Pascutto, who will present their work and participate in breakout room discussions.  


The discussion will include the challenges of pursuing EDI and community-engaged projects and how to reconfigure current systems, merit assessment, and funding allocation to better support EDI research and practices.  


The event is being hosted by Assistant Professor Piper Bernbaum, Assistant Professor Natalia Escobar Castrillón, faculty from Laurentian University and the University of Manitoba, and practitioners from Lemay architecture firm. 


It is the second of three workshops hosted by the Canadian University Schools of Architecture to consider how equity, inclusivity, diversity, and anti-racism intersect with our institutions, teaching, research, and service across faculty, instructors, and students.   

All three workshops will lead up to and support the Café Capital (Canadian Architecture Forums on Education) event being held this September at Carleton University, hosted by the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism with Associate Professor Ozayr Saloojee, Assistant Professor Natalia Escobar- Castrillón, and Assistant Professor Piper Bernbaum.   



Each event proposes short presentations, discussions, and lessons on pointed questions around Teaching & Learning, Research & Practice, and Service & Engagement.
