Building Equality in Architecture Toronto
Building Equality in Architecture exists to initiate change, building momentum to create a shift in the profession. Not only for architects on an individual level, but as an instigator to raise the voice of the profession at large, integrating it into conversations about how our built environment can be shaped to be more beautiful, functional, and enhance the human experience. As a group dedicated to enabling great architects to do great work, we understand that each of us must contribute to our fullest. Design excellence, diversity and equity are therefore not mutually exclusive.
We create events and networking opportunities to promote the achievements and visibility of women and minorities within the profession. Our events are open to everyone and target all phases of an architect’s career.
BEA is a national movement with chapters currently in Toronto, the Maritimes, Quebec, the Prairies, and Vancouver.
