Women in Architecture, WiA AIA|LA’s, Powerful conference (now entering its 6th iteration) has grown into an international caliber event.

Whether you are an early career designer looking for tools that lead to a successful career, a firm partner interested in raising your office’s profile, or an established mid-career architect ready to move forward, Powerful, is for you.

The theme for Powerful VI is: “Influence. Create. Amplify.” Don’t miss out on this inspirational event that draws sell-out crowds. Attend, learn, meet, and leave with actionable information as well as new relationships. But, we encourage you to register quickly: this AIA|LA event always sells out.
