On June 30, the last day of Pride month, Build Out Alliance and the ASLA-NY DEI Committee will bring together LGBTQ+ individuals from the field of landscape architecture to discuss what diversity and acceptance in the workplace means to them. Through a moderated conversation, Building Stories: Out in the Landscape, panelists will discuss the unique challenges and opportunities they have been facing as LGBTQ+ individuals, how they have seen the profession’s attitude evolve over time and how they live their lives with pride in the workplace.

Panelists include:
  • Adrian Smith, FASLA, landscape architect, NYC Parks and ASLA Vice President for Professional Practice (moderator)
  • Melinda Koo, architect, EDG (moderator)
  • Gonzalo Cruz, ASLA, landscape architect, AECOM
  • Katrina Majewski, ASLA, landscape architect, Prototype
  • Ricardo Hinkle, landscape architect, NYC Parks
  • Sami Sikanas, ASLA, landscape architect, Marvel
  • Steven Lee, ASLA, landscape architect, SWA
Through their stories, we will learn some of the challenges the LGBTQ+ community faces, hear how conversations can be different between colleagues and clients, and obtain a better understanding of how our employers support and protect LGBTQ+ employees.
