BosNOMA President, Racquel Davey, sat down with Modelo to discuss Racquel’s unique approach and design philosophy. To read the full interview, see the link below:
Social Equity has long been conceptualized as the third (and often last) leg of a triple bottom line sustainability stool. While LEED has driven environmental concerns to have equal footing with economic ones, we are just at the beginning of developing tools that allow us to measure and examine social equity results in a similar way.
This special event will include presentations from Francis Janes – director of the JUST Organizations labeling program for ILFI, Shawn Hesse – co-author of the new LEED Social Equity Pilot Credits, and Tony Ransom – Past President of the Boston chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (BosNOMA) discussing the importance of a focus on social equity in design, construction, and operations of our buildings, communities, and our organizations.
When: April 4th, 2015 from 5:30 to 7:30
Where: Milk St, 15th Floor
