Advocacy Update

A victory for AIA CA’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) efforts!

March 29, 2023–AB 342 (Valencia), a bill sponsored by AIA California, which would allow the California Architect Board to ask applicants and licensees to share their demographic information, has passed its first hurdle in the Legislature! The bill passed with unanimous bipartisan support out of the Assembly Business and Professions Committee on Tuesday.

The collection of this demographic information is essential to these EDI efforts, as it allows for research to be done to understand attrition and recruitment patterns impacting the profession. From there, we can better develop strategies to address any patterns that create barriers to entry.
