Picture this. A region where our world-class diversity is not only celebrated, but valued to its full potential. A region where city-building approaches are designed for and considerate of all residents. A region where all corners are thriving because of our diversity, not in spite of it. A region where the future is inclusive because it is affordable, resilient, and informed. This is the region we want to live in – are you in?
In November 2017, 150+ rising leaders came together at #ELNstudio3D to discover, decode, and drive the future of an inclusive region. We spent the day learning from diversity champions, industry leaders and each other, and brainstormed ways we can collectively build a more equitable and accessible region for all.
Below you’ll find the rich insights and ideas from ELNstudio 3D and some key actions we can all take to drive an inclusive future. Click the report report below to find out what you can do.
