In 2016, the Women in Architecture (WiA) Committee developed from a strong desire to empower and promote positive change for women in the field of architecture, heavily fueled by the influential POWERFUL: Women Leading Design conference series. The Committee’s mission is to promote Gender Equity in the profession.
The committee meets monthly for a series of lectures, networking opportunities, and workshops. WiA leads the organization of the annual POWERFUL conference.
The Women In Architecture will maintain a focus of embracing diversity through inclusion, encouraging professional growth through networking and interactions, promoting leadership and offering career guidance, endorsing community outreach, and providing support to women in their career development in architecture.
In a rapid-fire format, speakers at various levels in their professional careers will present on the moment that made them confident in their position and role in their profession. Expect to be inspired!
