As a leader, have you ever thought to yourself “when did that change?” I had no idea that was an issue or a problem. Then this is the class for you. We will discuss the on-going needs and risks within our practices and some of the ones coming your way soon. What does the #MeToo movement mean to our firms? Equity by Design? Why can’t someone just be an independent contractor if they want to? We will also delve into the key elements of culture. How to test your theories of staff Happiness. Elements to maximize staff retention. Where is your next staff member right now? Is it human or AI? How do you win a bidding war? It will be a lively discussion and we can learn from each other.

Rapid and major emissions reductions in the building sector will establish a powerful force for global action and business development. Widespread electrification of existing buildings (no onsite natural gas, heating oil, propane, etc.), in tandem with grid decarbonization and zero-net-carbon new construction, will create a steady and predictable market for renewable energy generation and storage. A paradigm shift in building design and material selection can accelerate manufacturing industries to significantly reduce the embodied carbon of their products. Policies that reduce the embodied carbon of building and infrastructure construction in neighborhoods, cities, and regions have the potential to reshape patterns of consumption and waste. Through practice and policy, the design, planning, and building community must rapidly transform urban development and the built environment from the major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions to a central part of the solution to the climate crisis. In the process, they will improve their market position and that of their clients.

In 2011, the first baby boomers started retiring and millennials surpassed baby boomers as the largest demographic in U.S. history. That same year also marked the first time that more than half of the children born were racial minorities, according to the Census Bureau. These and other macro demographic trends have impacted housing design and community amenities needed to attract young individuals and families to live. But they also impact the qualities companies need to attract the best and most ambitious young professionals to work. This presentation will address how the best companies are attracting and retaining the best talent, specifically in the design and development industries.
