Purposefully coinciding with Earth Day, our release of this report celebrates the progress we’ve made over the last year and highlights where we’re headed to meet our goals over the next 12 months.
Within our Human by Design ethos, this mission extends across our work, operations, and culture; the report covers our strides in each category:
- We encouraged studio-led sustainability activities, including community trash clean-up days, plant swaps, daylight hours, and composting.
- Our Executive Committee created a PEople Culture Manager role, promoting Perkins Eastman Senior Associate Emily Pierson-Brown to help lead the firm’s DE&I initiatives.
- Dozens of our colleagues participated in sustainability and diversity-oriented organizations to increase the diversity of our pipeline, including AIA Women’s Leadership, the National Organization of Minority Architects; Architecture, Construction, and Engineering Mentorship programs; and outreach to Historically Black Colleges & Universities.
