In 2007, Dr. Sheppard joined the board of the Bird-safe Glass Foundation as science advisor. In 2009, she moved to the American Bird Conservancy as Director of the Glass Collisions Program.

Juliet Kavishe – The Liminality of African Design
Juliet holds an M (Prof) in Interior Architecture and is a practising Professional Interior Architect, Design Educator and alumna of the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Juliet is a self-proclaimed Afro-minimalist and brought her personal ethos as an ambassador for the IID in 2018 and contributed to the PADI panel discussions around the identity of “Afrikan Design” in February 2020.
Juliet’s upbringing in four countries on two continents and extensive travels in later years have inspired her to create spaces influenced by her global citizenship, some of which can be seen in publications such as SA Décor and Design, SA Home Owner, Designing Ways, Africanism and Archdaily. Juliet’s personal Design Motto is that Architecture or Design is achieved once you consider the complexities and interrelationships of human beings and their surroundings.
