Jennifer Flanagan encourages grads to rebuild on a different foundation
My challenge, my call-to-action for you, the designers of our post-pandemic world, is to do this rebuild on a different foundation than what we had before — on a foundation of antiracism, of equality for women, honouring and incorporating the incredible Indigenous knowledge and voice of our country and building in diverse perspectives at every opportunity.
Your unapologetic, unwavering commitment to equality must be built into every structure, every bridge, every city, every research project, every computer program.
This reboot is an opportunity for us, for YOU, to do things differently.
Jennifer Flanagan is co-founder, president and CEO of Actua.
