ABOUT THE INITIATIVE
We believe that Interior Design plays a key role in protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public, and design has the power to heal and bring people together. However, we must all collectively take action in order to make real progress. Therefore, IIDA Northern California Chapter is launching a series of Equity Initiatives to fight against systemic racism in our society and inequity in the interior design field. Please join us in our effort and programs, which will include a virtual conversation series, community outreach, and mentorship programs.
“Confronting racism, injustice, and a need for equity is critical to moving forward… We know that design is but one small part of that larger equation—so why not start with the change we can most immediately affect?” – Cheryl Durst
