Join architecture students and alumni for a cross-institutional dialogue about ongoing movements for equity and justice in design education.
We are honoured to have special guests, Camille Mitchell (@ms_camillemitchell) and Tammy Gaber (@tammygaber), bring forward their own experiences with architectural education throughout their careers.
Moderators: Simone Delaney & Niara van Gaalen
Special guest: Tammy Gaber is an associate professor at the McEwen School of Architecture of Laurentian University where she teaches design and theory courses, joining as founding faculty in 2013. Dr. Gaber previously taught at University of Waterloo, American University in Cairo and the British University in Egypt. Some of her publications include her forthcoming book "Beyond the Divide: A Century of Canadian Mosque Design and Gender Allocation" and chapters on vernacular and regional architecture in "Habitat" Vernacular Architecture for a Changing Planet."
Special guest: Camille Mitchell leverages her professional work to cement her reputation as a powerful advocate for under-represented groups to be involved with her design of their built environments. She is a founding member of the independent organizations Building Equality in Architecture Toronto (BEAT) @beat_to and Black Architects + Interior Designer Association (BAIDA) @baida. Their programs are dedicated to supporting mentorship, networking and leadership opportunities for women and visible minorities within the architectural profession.
