Event Details:

Conference: DesignTO Festival
Location: Online
Date: January 28, 2022
Time: 1:00 pm

Please join Diamond Schmitt, Black Architects and Interior Designers Association (BAIDA) and Building Equality in Architecture Toronto (BEAT), along with other leading Canadian architects and designers on Friday, January 28th, 2022, from 1:00-6:00 pm EST for the second virtual BIPOC Portfolio Collaboration as part of the 2022 DesignTO Festival.

Associate Persis Lam will represent Diamond Schmitt in collaboratively reviewing students’ resumes and portfolios to assist this generation with the next steps of their career.

Students will be granted a half-hour review session with two professionals within the fields of architecture, interior design, landscape architecture or architectural technology. 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.

Please note that this is not a job interview. It is intended for students that are currently registered in Canadian schools of design or architectural technology and who also identify as Black, Indigenous or as a Person of Colour. There will also be an option for the collaborative review sessions to be offered in either English or French.
