The quarterly Roundtable is a community of architectural and engineering industry leaders who come together to network and learn.
Senior executives and corporate counsel of architecture and engineering firms gather for a 45-minute presentation by experts on a topic of immediate and practical relevance, followed by 45 minutes of discussion. Peers share ideas about current issues and best practices.
To ensure a true roundtable discussion, participation is limited. If you’re interested in being put on the invitation list, please contact Margaret Mills (event planner for The Coleman Executive Roundtable) at 952-595-6166 or email@example.com.

As diversity becomes a topic of greater discussion both in society and our profession, what are the ethical expectations of individuals and firms? This session will elaborate on the differences between ethics and morals as they relate to diversity, and will discuss the legal requirements of many diversity-related regulations and acts that apply to architecture firms both large and small. We will review the AIA Code of Ethics and similar documents with respect to diversity, and finally, we will end with a round table discussion of real-life scenarios in order to better understand and apply ethical decision-making.
Breakfast will be served along with insight and information from peers. As always, participants will receive a certificate for one hour of continuing education credit.
