ASLA Hosts Networking Reception of the Black Landscape Architects Network

On August 15, American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) welcomed guests from the Black Landscape Architects Network (BlackLAN) to the Center for Landscape Architecture in the District of Columbia for a networking reception.

The reception allowed BlackLAN members to network with peers and learn about ASLA membership, and the Society's diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

Led by Glenn LaRue Smith, ASLA, BlackLAN was founded in 2012 and is a communication platform open to students and professionals of African ancestry. The goal of BlackLAN is to foster mentorship and dialogue around issues relevant to the African-American community. One of the Network's primary goals is to increase the number of African-Americans in landscape architecture.
