Kathryn Soter BA ’80

Pronouns: She/Her


Kathryn Soter BA ’80 is executive director of the Good Future Design Alliance (GFDA), a mission-based organization of professionals dedicated to reducing waste in the design and build industry. The building industry perpetuates a culture of waste. Five-hundred million tons of construction waste and over 12 million tons of discarded furniture wind up in landfills each year. The design community (architects, interior designers, builders, makers) have a role in solving this problem. This is where the GFDA comes in, providing education, resources, tools, and networking opportunities to help members establish low-waste practices.
