How does firm culture affect behavior within the workplace? What are the best practices to ensure equitable and ethical behavior within your firm? Join this session to hear how to create an inclusive and rich ethical culture within your practice.

The session will begin with three short presentations and then shift to a moderated panel discussion. Presenters will include statistics on national trends in the gender/racial diversity of architects from internship to retirement; compare and contrast how firm culture affects ethical behavior, focusing a conversation around the (often greater) disparity in gender/racial equality in the engineering field; and explore programs promoting diversity and ethical behavior targeted toward young professionals within our region.
