About this event

United Front is excited to welcome our first local keynote presenter, Zachary Benedict, AIA, LEED AP. Zach is the President of MKM architecture + design and the Board Chair of Greater Fort Wayne Inc. He is the youngest award recipient of Ball State University's College of Architecture and Planning Alumni Society's Alumni Award for Outstanding Achievement and the Journal Gazette's 2022 Citizen of the Year.

With an extensive background in urban sociology, he lectures nationally on the intersection between the built environment and community well-being in hopes of inspiring audiences to better understand the importance of inclusive civic space. Zach will be passionately sharing his thoughts on how effective community development can be measured – a discussion that will explore how placemaking systemically impacts our collective understanding of racial equity and inclusion.
