What is NCARB doing to improve diversity within the organization?

NCARB has developed a strategy for encouraging appointing officials (such as governors) to place more diverse individuals on state or territorial licensing boards. We are committed to both providing and promoting opportunities for architects of all backgrounds to get involved in our organization.

NCARB is working with local AIA chapters and the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) to encourage people of color to serve on state licensing boards, as well as on our various committees (which allow for greater networking with the licensing board community).

We encourage everyone within our community to recommend or apply for licensing board appointments by exploring the open positions on licensing boards as featured on our website, which are updated as soon as they become available.
