Building Equality in Architecture exists to initiate change, building momentum to create a shift in the profession. Not only for architects on an individual level, but as an instigator to raise the voice of the profession at large, integrating it into conversations about how our built environment can be shaped to be more beautiful, functional, and enhance the human experience. As a group dedicated to enabling great architects to do great work, we understand that each of us must contribute to our fullest. Design excellence, diversity and equity are therefore not mutually exclusive.
We create events and platforms to promote the achievements and visibility of women and minorities within the profession. Our events are open to everyone and target all phases of an architect’s career. BEA is a national movement with chapters currently in Toronto, the Maritimes, Quebec, the Prairies, and Vancouver.
Networking can be one of the most powerful and productive activities an individual can do to launch and manage their career. In the workplace today, it is important that we are known to others, and to ensure that others are aware of our resourcefulness. BEAT MIX is a platform to develop a series of relationships across Toronto’s Architecture and Design communities. BEAT is excited to host this event in collaboration with flooring industry leaders Relative Space! They source eco-friendly flooring under the guiding principles that good design should solve problems, and materials should be sustainable and socially responsible.
BEAT MIX includes five Featured Guests who are stationed in specific Zones throughout the showroom. The Featured Guests comprises of Partners and Principals from local Architecture firms of various sizes, along with leaders in the Design Community. Participants have the opportunity to interact with the Featured Guests and meet a succession of individuals in small groups throughout the evening. BEAT encourages Interns, emerging practitioners and seasoned professional to join this interconnected community to share information, advice and opportunities.
An assortment of light refreshments and beverages will be included with ticket purchase. All attendees are required to be 19 years of age or older. Limited space available. More information on event, accessing tickets and Featured Guests will be available through www.BEAToronto.com.
