Why Whitney Young's Legacy Matters: Part One
This session highlights the work of Gabrielle Bullock, FAIA, the 2020 Whitney M. Young Jr. Award recipient to create a more accountable and inclusive profession. Bullock argues for anchoring practices that support diversity so that justice and equity can take root in a methodical and effective way.
