Have you been wondering what you can do to promote equity in your firm’s work?
Join us for this event to get started or to take the next steps. Centering Equity in Passive House is a presentation and workshop to offer a practical path for companies to either begin the discussion or improve upon existing diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within their firms. The presentation (developed from the Centering Equity in the Sustainable Building Sector initiative of NAACP) asks members of the Passive House community to challenge themselves, their companies and organizations, to take on self-identified commitments which build up the next generation of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) professionals in the design, engineering, construction, and management of the Passive House movement across North America.
The workshop identifies three areas for action in centering equity in our Passive House work: hiring processes, dedicated funding, and internal transformations. A worksheet exercise will engage participants in generating plans for action in those three areas and, with discussion in small breakout room sessions as well as a larger, moderated forum to elevate mutual learning. Co-presented by Astrid Countee and Johnny Rezvani.
