About BEAA

BEAA is a volunteer led non-profit which was formed to promote equality and inclusion in architecture and related professions through advocacy, mentorship, and networking. BEAA strives to advance the achievements and visibility of women and groups underrepresented in architecture and related professions. 

Following in the footsteps of Building Equality in Architecture Toronto (BEAT), BEA Atlantic was publicly launched at the 2018 RAIC Festival in Saint John, New Brunswick by a team of dedicated architects and designers under the support and guidance of established architectural practitioners and BEAT founders. In addition to BEAA and BEAT, BEA currently includes chapters in the Prairies (BEAP & BEACalgary) and Northern Canada (BEAN).
