A Journey into
Join us for this 5-part series as Suzanne Wilkinson, Principal at Figure3 and Ian Rolston, Founder at Decanthropy
discuss the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in design, and share their thoughts on the journey
to impact change.
Here in part 1, Suzanne and Ian discuss a shift in mindset and why bringing diversity to the table is imperative. “When
we began the process with Decanthropy, it was really encouraging to hear that my partners and I all had a similar
mindset right from the start” explains Wilkinson. “We wanted to do more than just put a DEI statement on our website;
we wanted to take the time to learn and reflect on how as a business we can do more to celebrate diversity and ensure
equity and inclusion are at the forefront of everything we do.”
Follow along as we peel back the layers of corporate culture, personal experience and the heart and soul of how
diversity, equity and inclusion can improve all aspects of the work we do – from the brief to the bottom line – these
candid conversations encourage a shift in thinking, and prompt us to ask what we can be doing as a business to be better.
