Flad Team Member Featured in Article on Black Architects
As part of a three-part series celebrating Wisconsin's Black architects and promoting diversity in architecture, Flad Project Manager Chitani Ndisale was featured in Madison365 for his leadership in significant projects at Flad.
Despite movement toward more diversity over the last decade, underrepresentation among many ethnic groups in architecture continues to be a well-documented challenge for the industry at large. The article, Building Black: Celebrating Wisconsin's Black Architects, reports that per the National Council of Architect Registration Boards, out of 1,528 licensed architects in Wisconsin, only 11 are Black. Associations such as the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA), of which Chitani is a member, seek to break down barriers in the industry by fostering fellowship and connection among minority architects, offering mentorship to collegiate students pursuing design careers, and fighting discrimination that unfairly restricts minority architects' participation in the A/E/C industry.
