Join us on Thursday, January 14th for Best Practice, a virtual fireside chat series dedicated to practice operations at architecture firms and beyond. From pain points to potential, hear how leaders in the architecture and engineering industry are innovating through new business models and managerial techniques.

We’re chatting with Yiselle Santos Rivera, AIA, NOMA, LSSYB, WELL AP, LEED AP. Yiselle is a medical planner and the Firmwide Director of Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion at HKS. With national and international experience on a broad range of projects, she thrives on building belonging, equitable practices, and designing for inclusion. Seeking to empower the next generation of leaders, she co-founded the Latin American Interior Designers, Engineers, and Architects (LA.IDEA) DC Committee and founded the “Women Inspiring Emerging Leaders in Design” (WIELD) event, recipient of the 2019 AIA Diversity Program Recognition Award. Yiselle serves on the AIA National Board, the AIA DC Chapter Board, and is a DC NOMA Board Advisor. She is a member of the AIA Equity and the Future of Architecture Board Committee, the New Urban Agenda Taskforce, and the AIA COVID-19 Health Impact Taskforce.

In this 45 minute chat, we'll talk to Yiselle about equity, diversity, & inclusion within AEC firms.

Find out:

  • How can firms design for inclusion?
  • What does an equitable practice look like?
  • What can firms do to empower the next generation of leaders?
  • and More!
