"How can we make sure people designing cities are representative of the places they serve?" Join us in the parlor for a conversation with Tiffany Brown of 400 Forward.
Earlier this year, the 400th African-American woman was licensed to be an architect in the United States. With over 110,000 registered architects, that makes .03 percent who are African-American Women.
Detroit architectural designer Tiffany Brown wants to change that. As creator of 400 Forward, a new Knight Arts winning program of Urban Arts Collective co-founded by Brown and two fellow designers from Detroit, she is working to build a more accessible road for the next generation, through multi-point contact starting at K-12 levels through licensure.
Born and raised in Detroit, Brown works for SmithGroupJJR, serves as Vice President of NOMA Detroit, and serves on the K-12 Working Group with The American Institute of Architects. She holds a M.Arch and MBA from Lawrence Tech, where she is also an adjunct professor.
Join us for a conversation about moving the needle.
