Panelists include: Moderator Eric Henson, policy advisor for councilperson Monica Montgomery-Steppe; Carmen Vann, LEED AP B D +C, Project Executive B N Builders; Edgar Camerino, engineer, RICK Engineering; Alfonso Barragan, associate principal, Safdie Rabines Architects; and Kayleigh Cornejo, a fifth-year architecture student at Woodbury University.

'Collaboration, Connection, Community' Panel Discussion
How do we foster partnerships between individuals to create something new, something better? How can we open doors in our own work to connect and elevate members of the community?
Beyond the tools of technology that connect us day-to-day, collaboration is part of human instinct. It happens when two or more people work together, purposely, toward a shared goal. Join us as we discuss the power of collaboration and how partnering up can boost ideas — and take them to new heights.
Panelists include: Ashanti Davis, Exhibitions Manager at Fleet Science Center; Genevieve Deperio Fong, Situation Unit Lead at County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency; and Don Hollis, Founder of Hollis Brand Culture
Hosted by: AIGA San Diego in partnership with OH!
Cost: Free (suggested donation)

'Design for Good' Panel Discussion
Join us for a panel discussion featuring local architectural designers as they offer up a virtual tour of exemplary projects the world over. Highlighted projects embody the highest design standards (with the awards and citations to prove it). What's more, all of the featured projects have contributed greatly to the underserved, disenfranchised communities they're part of. And you can't put a price on that.
Panelists include: Kurt Hunker, FAIA, Design Consultant for Davy Architecture; Eric Naslund, FAIA, Studio E; Laura Lesniewski, FAIA; Danielle Buttacavoli, AIA AICP, BNIM
Hosted by: AIA San Diego in partnership with OH!
