Great architecture demands diversity – of background, talent, ideas and experience. Thoughtful, successful design must contribute to building a more equitable and inclusive world.

Our Commitment:

Breslin Architects is committed to maintaining an organization in which clients and employees, whatever gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, background, or disability, are valued and respected. We esteem diverse life experiences, perspectives and heritages to ensure that all voices are heard.

We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach that provides equal opportunity for employment and advancement in our organization, as well as those whom we retain as sub-consultants.

We are committed to demonstrating diversity and inclusion within the architecture community, and we believe that these qualities promote responsive design and improve our built environment.

Our Focus:

Breslin Architects identifies the following actions to help promote this commitment through authentic leadership in our organization and beyond:

Seek to identify and dismantle any inequities within our policies and services, and commit to continual assessment.

Explore potential underlying assumptions that interfere with inclusive design.

Help our clients to challenge assumptions that pose obstacles for equitable access within the facilities we design.

Practice and encourage transparent communication in all interactions.

Pursue design competency by fostering substantive learning opportunities regarding cultural, socioeconomic and disability related differences in the experience and perception of architecture.

Support programs that encourage diverse participation in our profession and pipeline education institutions.

Lead with respect and open-mindedness in our community.
