Lately “diversity” seems to be the word on everyone’s lips. Industries ranging from finance, technology, education and transportation, have been having discussions around how can companies bring more diversity into our workplaces and projects and more and more back into the built environment. But what is diversity without inclusion?
The Bay Area has a legacy of being a culturally-rich region often looked upon as a model of equity and innovation. But those of us who live here can attest to the inequities and lack of inclusion via design that is rapidly shaping the Bay Area’s landscape and workforces.
Join us for a dynamic evening with designers, community leaders and policy makers practicing Inclusive Design… and engagement, working to create a more inclusive Bay Area. This panel is to be preceded and followed by City Within a City!

City Within a City is a celebration! This open air market place is filled with the stories of those who came for sanctuary, those who provide resource and services to our most at risk communities and those who work to maintain the culture of the Bay Area that so many come here to enjoy! City Within a City is a celebration of you! Those of us from the Bay Area who are still here surviving, thriving, creating and supporting each other. It ain’t always easy navigating these waters so let’s celebrate the hustle spirit of those who do and engage their stories of, how! Ultimately it’s the people that make a city and City Within a City serves to honor them.
