Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Conversation to Action

 

Wednesday, August 25, 2021 

4:00-5:00 pm PT

Via Zoom


 

 

 Join the USGBC-LA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee as they present Capri Maddox's session from USGBC-LA's 2021 Municipal Green Building Conference & Expo, "Build With Equity: Paving the Way for a More Just Los Angeles." The DEI Committee is soliciting feedback on creating opportunities for underserved communities. How do we ensure infrastructure dollars make it to the neighborhoods that need it most and that we are actively working to close the gap in environmental justice? Don’t miss an opportunity to network with those committed to bringing more DEI to the green building industry in Los Angeles. The committee will lead a discussion with attendees focused on actionable and intersectional solutions to combat climate change.
