IESNYC Is Pleased to be Allied with EIL
Founded in the Spring of 2020, Equity in Lighting's (EIL) goal is to increase the diversity within the lighting community of NYC so it may better reflect the diversity of our country through the tools of outreach, educational events, and industry policy. In partnership with the DLF NY, IALD NY, IES NYC, Parsons Lighting, NACLIQ, and WILD NYC, the EIL has tasked each of their partners to create 3-4 events that focus on diversity within their niche. The goal of these events is to show lighting through different perspectives so that we may become better designers, colleagues, and human beings. Visit equityinlighting.org
