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 V, the WiA AIA|LA’s conference dedicated to equity, provides support.
More Powerful? Yes.
Since the AIA|LA established the conference in 2015, we’ve seen the profile of women rise. Not just in our profession, but in others. Led by the WIA AIA|LA committee, Powerful V taps into this wave.
In 2018, the committee adds compelling global figures from multiple disciplines to Powerful’s dynamic programming mix of: internationally-acclaimed architectural leaders, break-out sessions tailored to individual interests, informative panels, and tool kits for success.
Is there more to Powerful V? Yes.
Here are just a few of the exciting speakers you’ll hear in 2018, all for a price that’s less than a hotel room for an out-of-town-conference:
+ Elaine Molinar, AIA – Partner, Managing Director, Snøhetta (Keynote)
+ Maria Salvador Smith – Executive Creative Director, M&C Saatchi
+ Trina Turk – Fashion Designer, Founder of the lifestyle brand Trina Turk
+ Sharon Tal Yguado – Head of Genre Original Series, Amazon Studios
+ California Assemblymember Laura Friedman (43rd District/Glendale) (Keynote)
+ To lead an unconscious bias workshop with guided interactive components that transfer to real-world hiring practices (and wins):
Candice Gottlieb-Clark – President, Dynamic Team Solutions and Belinda Morris – Founder & President, Peoplescape Consulting Group
+ Over 22 Lunchtime Breakout Discussion Sessions
Don’t miss out on this inspirational event that draws sell-out crowds. Attend, learn, meet, and leave with actionable information and a larger support system.
Be more Powerful.
