The AIA Seattle Diversity Roundtable and co-hosts (at right) invite all to join the 7th Annual Summer Solstice Sequence.
Ethnic regalia welcome at all events.
Again this year, proceeds benefit the Roundtable's program to support students from diverse backgrounds at the University of Washington College of Architecture and Urban Planning – targeting completion of the endowment campaign for a second student scholarship, the AIA Seattle Fund for Diversity.

This year, AIA national President-elect Douglas Steidl FAIA will join local celebrants in the joyful and mindful observance. He offers this observation and encouragement to Solstice celebrants: "Diversity within the practice of architecture is critical to our long-term relevance. And with the only way to access this profession being through accredited schools, scholarship programs for diversity are absolutely critical to our future. Please keep up the good work."
