Designers, planners and architects hold an invaluable key to creating just, equitable, diverse and inclusive outcomes in the built environment at all scales. How we can design safe, equitable and beautiful spaces for all, from breastfeeding mothers to those traveling in wheelchairs to the unhoused? What does it take to stimulate empathy, awareness and intercultural intelligence in our workplaces and projects? In honor of women's history month, learn how designers and planners are introducing inclusivity into their industries. Co-presented by Women's Environmental Network.
