Our Vision:  The Design Leadership Foundation’s vision is to mentor, support, welcome and uplift talent, youth and people within the global architecture and design fields.

Our Mission:  The Design Leadership Foundation’s mission is to ensure a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the fields of architecture and design. We believe, at a young age, everyone should be able to envision themselves in the professional fields of architecture and design no matter their race, gender, creed or background. The DLF seeks to create new opportunities and exposure for historically marginalized and vulnerable groups to better unify the world of design.
