Accountability: The First Steps Towards Diversity

Accountability: The First Steps Towards Diversity

T-Concepts Solutions, the company I co-founded, is a family-owned business of European descent steeped in German, Dutch, and Gaelic roots but also incredible African & Native American heritage.


Along our journey as a company, we have built on the strength of diversity. Our company is comprised of men and women the world over, spanning Europe, Asia, Central, and South America. To our organization gender, sexual orientation, race, creed, religion, has never been an obstacle. It’s never been something to ‘contend’ with. We strive to be the example we wish to see in the world, not just the “spoken change.  Action is our motto.

However one thing is clear and that is personal inventory, a check-in-balance, to help ensure that as an owner of a company I am consistently thinking and preparing our business to stay strong in our conviction of diversity. We make noise, noise, noise, noise. Never silent. At The Design Alchemist, we make it our pleasure and duty to feature the human experience on every spectrum. No boundaries and no idioms. 

In honor of this past Black History Month, it’s only pertinent to share the black women and men who are changing the face of design-build and too often go unnoticed and unrecognized for their contribution to this profession. A profession in which they are collectively changing for the better.. Remember the whole action over words statement???

“You know I’m drifting along
I will get to my destination
I’m feeling the pressure
All around me crumble
But I won’t put down this time
I’m shifting along
Though I sing a sweet song
Giants will roam forever
I’m cruising the street
Wondering who I will meet
Oh … love and understanding has got reign in our world”


~ Jamiroquai

These are the NEW giants to reckon with as they roam, create, and help bring forth a new strong-hold for the future of architecture.
