Join Gensler, along with other leading Canadian architects and designers, for a collaborative review of resumes and portfolios to assist BIPOC Students in the design industry with the next steps in their careers. In the 4th annual BIPOC Portfolio Collaboration, students will be granted a half hour review session with two professionals within the fields of Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Architectural Technology, Experiential Design (Signage & Wayfinding and Environmental Graphic Design). This will be an opportunity for students to engage in conversations with members of the design community while refining their interview skills. Strategies and advice will be shared by all participants to gear students towards design excellence and enrichment within their future careers.
The event is being organized by Gensler in collaboration with BAIDA, BEAT and SOSA. Please note that this is not a job interview. It is intended for students that are currently registered in Canadian schools who also identify as Black, Indigenous or as a Person of Colour.
Please Note: Review sessions are 30 mins but run any time from 2-5pm EST (11am-2pm PST) on Thursday, January 25 and Friday, January 26. A 10 minute introduction will be given at 1:50pm EST (10:50am PST) for all to join on January 25 and 26. More information will be sent closer to the date of the event and organizers will do their best to accommodate all students.
