Celebrating Black History Month
February 1, 2023
February is Black History Month, a time when people come together to listen to and share stories that honour the histories, culture, and contributions of Black people to society.
At KPMB, we continue to educate ourselves to be race literate and support initiatives that address anti-Black racism, prioritize racial equity, and celebrate the contributions of Black people to the built environment and broader society. We are committed to dismantling the systems and barriers that prevent Black inclusion in our firm, our field, and our work. We are dedicated to using our position of leadership to advance the cause of social justice and create inclusive and accessible spaces that provide opportunities for communities to grow, prosper and celebrate.
We do this year-round, not just in February.
We encourage our peers to commit their support, with action and intention, to end racial discrimination in their practice and work. KPMB is eager to build new relationships with Black communities, architects, and designers and support them in tangible, lasting ways. Please reach out with opportunities and partnerships you feel would be suitable to support.
