Is a ground up initiative that promotes equality and diversity in the city-building professions. Our organization aims to support, celebrate, and connect practitioners working in architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, urban planning, and the construction industry. BEA uses an intersectional and cross-disciplinary approach to support leadership, mentorship, and networking opportunities in our professional community. We host events and public lectures; work to generate awareness and dialogue around inclusive practices and addressing barriers; and celebrate the multiplicity of voices, hands, and minds who plan and design our communities.
In collaboration with BEAT Toronto, BEA Vancouver/Victoria, BEAAtlantic, and BEAPrairies we will be working to connect and support design and planning professionals across Canada.
