#47 - Equity by Design

Archispeak is proud to have Rosa Sheng, Architect, Senior Associate with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson and AIA SF Board of Directors join us as we touch the "third rail" of the architectural profession and discuss equity in architecture. Rosa shares with us the results from The Missing 32% Project's Equity by Design 2014 Symposium, her thoughts on women in architecture and where we go from here. Also included are audio comments from attendees who were at the Equity by Design 2014 Symposium.
