Diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives
within healthcare design represent
steps to put a new face on the industry
and better represent the healthcare
organizations and patient populations

HEN RODERIC WALTON
was pursuing
a graduate degree
in architecture at
Miami University
in Oxford, Ohio,
in 2003, he wrote
a thesis about the
implications of a Eurocentric curriculum on
architectural design. Specifi cally, he recalls, he
explored how African and African American
contributions to U.S. architecture weren't considered.
A Black man, Walton found himself
missing from the narrative. " I had a hard time
finding a path for myself as a young architectural
student who was trying to fi gure out if this
was a career that I wanted to dedicate my life to
because I didn't have a whole lot of role models
who looked like me, and the history being
taught was that I had nothing to do with making
architecture great, " he says.
However, the program has evolved signifi cantly
since then, he adds. Walton, now a principal
and project manager at Moody Nolan (Chicago),
remains in contact with his alma mater, which

about people of color and their infl uences on the
field. " Understanding that history and having
that historical perspective establishes a foundation
for the entire industry to now be more inclusive
and embrace people of color at a broader
scale, " he says.
Walton joined four other healthcare design
professionals recently to speak with Healthcare
Design and collectively explore the topic of diversity
and equity in the industry. The group also
included Taft Cleveland, architectural designer
at SmithGroup (Chicago); Ariana Hallenbeck,
designer, associate, and diversity champion at
Perkins&Will (Dallas); Victoria Navarro, regional
director of planning, design, and construction
at Advocate Aurora Health (Milwaukee); and
Tammy Thompson, president of the Institute
for Patient-Centered Design Inc. and corporate
director of experience design for Vidant Health
(Greenville, N.C.).
The panel shared similar experiences as Walton's
in terms of fi nding few role models or peer
representation in the design field during their
early careers, especially-Navarro was one
of three women who graduated from her college
architecture program, and Thompson was
among the 0.2 percent of female African American
registered architects when she entered the
profession. Cleveland shared that during his
