Established in January 2018, GETT is an initiative of Perkins+Will’s Toronto studio to promote gender equity and diversity in architecture and design, both within the practice and more broadly within the larger design community. Established by female leaders within the office, and comprised of ten employees on a rotating basis, the Taskforce represents the studio’s full range of disciplines and seniorities, from student interns to Principals. GETT is delighted to be hosting a BEAT discussion as their first public event!
