THANK YOU TO OUR Event Sponsors
Thank you for joining us for the 2022 LAF Innovation + Leadership Symposium!
The symposium is the culmination of the yearlong LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership. As we confront increasingly complex and interrelated environmental, social, and economic challenges of the 21st century, this fellowship brings together a diverse group of landscape architecture professionals to develop and test new ideas. It is an entrepreneurial investment in the people and ideas that will drive the future of our profession.
The LAF Fellowship would not be possible without the leadership and facilitation of Lucinda Sanders, FASLA, and Laura Solano, FASLA, as well as the many guest facilitators who contribute their time and expertise. Special thanks also to our 50 & Forward Campaign donors whose financial investment makes the fellowship possible.
The LAF Fellows presenting today consider their work to be part of a collective with a singular message: Transformational leadership by landscape architects could heal our post-traumatic world; but it will require kinship, redirection, communion, empowerment, multiplicities, and evolution. We look forward to your continued interest and engagement with these issues as we work to bring about impactful change to the environment and humanity.
Continuing Education Credits
