Making a Difference
DREAMS DO COME TRUE
A HUGE THANK YOU to the San Diego Architectural Foundation for raising funds on behalf of SDNOMA for a new scholarship. This scholarship will support one BIPOC high school student's dream to pursue a career in the AEC industry. The SDAF's 44th Annual Orchids + Onions Gala raised $7,500 and we will be awarding the funds to a student this fall.

OVERCOMING THE 2%: DIVERSITY EQUITY AND INCLUSION IN THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
SDAF and SDNOMA are holding a webinar event on May 13th entitled Overcoming the 2%: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Built Environment. Save the Date!”
LISTEN TO THE STORY OF THE SDNOMA CHAPTER
SDNOMA started off in 2020 with (8) members who share a passion for design, love of San Diego and dedication to JEDI in the profession. Click on Image above for video.
SDNOMA knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. The totality of events in the first half of 2020 has laid bare the racial inequities that exist in our communities. Together, the design community can be a force of change to overcome these challenges which is why we formed a local chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA).
"We walk in outer space, but we can't walk the streets of Cicero"
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Membership is open to all who care about design, community and progress.
Membership is for the calendar year Jan. 1 - Dec. 31 and is not prorated.
