Updates from ASLA


ASLA Pride Webinar


On June 27th, the last week of Pride month, ASLA is hosting “Queer in Practice”, a free webinar bringing together LGBTQ+ individuals from the field of landscape architecture across the country to discuss their lived experiences in the workplace. Working in organizations that range from a small LGBTQ+ certified design build shop to a 900-person interdisciplinary firm, our panelists will share their stories and offer opportunities for improving everyone’s ability to be their authentic selves at work. Panelists will share how they live their lives with pride in the workplace.

Panelists include:

  • Jordan Chiang, Associate ASLA, EDSA
  • Max Dickson, Associate ASLA, OLIN
  • Kelley Oklesson, ASLA, Groundsmith Collective
  • Cheri Ruane, FASLA, Weston & Sampson
Through their sharing, we will learn some of the common experiences of our LGBTQ+ community, hear about successful advocacy efforts, and obtain a better understanding of how owners can support and protect LGBTQ+ designers. Event Details: June 27, 2024 12:00 - 1:00pm ET Register Here
