Inclusion Advocacy Committee

The Inclusion Advocacy Committee's purpose is to encourage equity and cultural diversity within APT and the broader preservation community; foster networking between different cultures and organizations; and implement outreach to underrepresented communities in effort to collaboratively and fittingly preserve the built environment.

Partner - Connect and build partnerships for preservation and conservation-based objectives in other regions to expand the network and knowledge-sharing across multiple countries and cultures.

Educate - Make a continuous effort to continue the dialogue of the impact of preservation on underrepresented and marginalized communities; specifically, through conferences, publications, symposiums, tours and other workshops.

Diversify - Expand the cultural diversity within the APT community membership and network to promote dialogue and participation between diverse perspectives and voices.

Advocate - Inspire understanding and support for the goals of our organization by advocating and contributing to local communities where APT conferences are held via workshops or larger projects.
