PJ Glasco Speaks On Industry Workplace Inequality Panel

This is the third Workplace Equity Series hosted by AIA Houston.

PJ Glasco, a principal and leader in our Houston healthcare practice, was part of a AIA Houston Women in Architecture panel discussion on workplace inequity in the design industry.

This was the third annual Equity Series. This year’s theme was “Hidden Costs: An investigation into the price we pay for workplace inequity.” The speakers discussed how intersecting identities experience compounded effects of inequality, the losses that happen when inequality isn’t addressed in a design organization, impactful strategies for improving workplace equality as well as championing diversity.
