RI Minorities in Architecture & Design
Rhode Island Minorities in Architecture & Design (RIMiAD) is an organization that fosters connections between individuals from underrepresented groups within the architecture, design, and allied fields. Founded in November 2022, RIMiAD has created a space for networking and community-building among designers and professionals. A critical part of RIMiAD’s mission is to promote diversity in the workplace, both by providing support to current professionals and inspiring students of all backgrounds to pursue architecture and design fields. Our organization is run by a committee of volunteers dedicated to furthering RIMiAD’s mission through planning events and developing new resources for our community. Our meetup events for professionals and college students occur every other month and are hosted at minority-owned businesses throughout the state. We are excited to work with our fiscal sponsor, DESIGNxRI, to grow our network and expand our organizational reach in Rhode Island. Our hope for 2024 is to launch a mentorship program and create a robust network for our community.
Donations to RIMiAD will go toward future networking events, building our website, and providing expanded services to our community. All RIMiAD donations are tracked by DESIGNxRI and go towards supporting RIMiAD's mission and efforts. Once submitted you will receive a thank you email from DESIGNxRI.
