Miller Hull principal Caroline Kreiser participates in a panel titled:
“Not Why, but How: Diversity, Equity, and Sustainability”
Now more than ever, the AEC industry needs to shine a light on the importance and value of diverse and inclusive teams. There is growing evidence that embracing diversity — in all senses — is key to doing good business. When we think beyond ‘green’ to the full range of sustainability and regenerative issues, we must embrace our entire human family including women, people of color, people of all incomes, people from all over the world. This session features tools and ideas for attendees to take back to their place of work.
