Our team was excited to have Russell Pollard, Founder of Framework Leadership, come to our studio and deliver a presentation on Pride. The purpose of the Pride Talk series is to support equity and inclusion for LGTBQ+ employees in the workplaces of architecture, consulting engineering, and design firms. We found the session to be informative and thought-provoking, and gained a lot from the Q&A period following where he generously shared his experiences and wisdom.
“I appreciated Russell’s ability to combine his personal experiences and professional expertise to raise awareness about the ways in which equity, diversity, and inclusion can impact a professional environment. When we support workplace diversity through fair and inclusive practices, it not only fosters creativity, innovation, and engagement but also helps us build stronger connections with the diverse communities we design and collaborate with”.
