Angelita Scott, Ph.D., Allied ASID, IDEC

Director and Community Concept Lead and Standard and Health Equity Lead
International WELL Building Institute

Dr. Angie Scott is Director and Community Concept Lead for the WELL Building Standard and Health Equity Lead at the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). She previously served as an Assistant Professor of Interior Design believing that the built environment should be equitable for everyone regardless of race, gender, age, or ability. Her research takes a preventative approach to the interior environment focusing on the intersection of residential design, housing, and well-being; and cultural well-being and workplace environments. Through these perspectives, she focuses on mental health (stress reduction) and occupant satisfaction.

Dr. Scott has worked in the interior design profession as a practitioner, educator, and researcher for over 20 years. She earned a Ph.D. in interior design focusing on evidence-based design from the University of Minnesota, holds a DEI Workplace Certificate from the University of South Florida, and was named an inaugural ASID Ones To Watch Award Winner and Scholar. Scott believes the building industry can make significant contributions to people's lives through the impact of the built environment on mental, physical, and social well-being.
