The Conversation Continues with IIDA EDI – Beyond Words

IIDA EDI (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) seeks to create a more diverse industry for our future. We explore how to break glass ceilings, show that all voices matter, and explore a world where we can grow, learn, and make impactful change in our design industry. Our hope is to dialogue together, in a safe environment, about EDI in our industry, to promote meaningful, healthy, and effective transformations on how we practice and create interior design.”The Conversation Continues” podcast was created to serve as a platform to continue the conversation around Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in commercial interior design and affiliated industries. Each episode brings an intimate and thought-provoking conversation around EDI highlighting individuals from our industry. Come join us, and let’s continue the conversation!

This is the trailer to explain one of the five series on our Podcast about Fireside chats. This series will be an educational series about advocacy and legislative efforts in California. And how you can learn more about what advocacy in our industry is, how it’s important for everyone to be involved and how you can help make a difference.

This is the first of the five series titled “Beyond Words.”

For the first episode of the “Beyond Words” Series, we invited Jade Li, our current President of the IIDA Southern California Chapter to share her personal stories. (Fun fact, Jade is the first AAPI President elected for IIDA Southern California)

Jade grew up in Ha’erbin, China, and moved to the U.S. with her family at 12. In this episode, Jade shares her education, culture, and language journey in the U.S. We also discussed her career as a Commercial Interior Designer, her passion for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and what contributed to her success today.

Come and join us for this fun and inspirational conversation!
