We are proud to announce the launch of DLNx which seeks to recognize and amplify the voices of female designers and architects through community, empowerment and achievement. The women of DLNx utilize their significant influence to act on opportunities and serve as agents of purposeful long-term change.
This newly formed interest group chaired by Michael Imber has worked over the past few months to design a set of initiatives around education and promotion of sustainable and responsible design and architecture. The mission of Pure Design is to change the trajectory of design by promoting environmental sustainability, wellness, and a thriving design community.
The DLF has been established by an independently led group of design industry leaders who share a vision to mentor, support and uplift youth from all backgrounds to expand diversity within the architecture and design fields now and for generations to come. This is an exciting development for our community!
