Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion: A Facilitated Discussion [Virtual]

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
 Add to Calendar

Virtual Meeting


 Directions

Co-hosted by AIA Potomac Valley and AIA Northern Virginia Women in Architecture

Without question, the last 12 months have challenged the nation and raised important questions about how we will be in relationship with one another as a community and a society. This directly affects architects and the design community both personally and professionally. With that in mind and to support our commitment to equity, health, and wellbeing, we will host a virtual session providing an opportunity to learn about identity-based inequities, to discuss their impacts, and to explore what we each can do to combat oppression and injustice.

This session consists of a presentation from a nationally-known speaker, strategist, master facilitator, and public health leader, followed by a facilitated discussion. Attendees will gain greater understanding of, and tools to address, equity-based issues.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. This session will lay a foundation and common understanding for working together with people from diverse backgrounds, while providing an opportunity to connect meaningfully as we share perspectives, experiences, and hope for the future.
  2. Participants will explore a common language for equity-focused work and historical context for identity-based inequities.
  3. Attendees will learn key concepts related to equity, including the roles of privilege and oppression; equity, diversity, and inclusion; and an equity lens.
  4. Participants will gain a greater understanding of the importance of equitable approaches within the context of current sociopolitical conditions, including:
    • How they can apply an equity lens to policies, programs, and practices
    • How to apply an equity lens to decisions, behaviors, and actions as equitable leaders and professionals
    • The importance of intent vs. impact
    • The importance of allyship and anti-racist/”anti-ist” approaches within the context of current socio-political conditions

Natalie S. Burke
President and CEO of CommonHealth ACTION

A nationally-known speaker, strategist, master facilitator, and public health leader, Natalie S. Burke is President and CEO of CommonHealth ACTION–whose mission is to develop people and organizations to produce health through equitable policies, programs, and practices.

She serves as co-director for the Robert Wood Johnson funded Culture of Health Leaders Program and directed Kaiser Permanente’s Institute for Equitable Leadership in Baltimore.

A graduate of the University of Maryland, Natalie has participated in the Emerging Leaders in Public Health Fellowship (University of North Carolina’s Schools of Business and Public Health) and New York University’s Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service Lead the Way Fellowship for entrepreneurial leaders in the nonprofit sector.

Natalie believes that to alter our collective health destiny, we must change our language; challenge deeply held beliefs about equity in our society, and accept the role we each play in the production of the public’s health.
