In keeping with our commitment to our diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion (DEAI) goals, SEGD’s Racial Justice committee hired Angie Brice Thomas of Brice Consulting Group LLC as consultant and coach for the “hard and heart work” of anti-racism training. We believe that creating a more diverse membership within the organization—and more diverse workplaces within the design community— leads to greater innovation and offers both social and economic benefits. (For reference, take a look at some of the recent DEI studies by McKinsey & Company.) SEGD sat down with Angie to learn more about the “Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion Engagement Plan” for SEGD. Angie’s work with the organization began in August of 2021 and will continue through March of 2023. Here’s what she has to say about her philosophy, experience, and approach as a DEAI practitioner.
