Welcome to all, and come celebrate Women in Architecture with us this fall. This year, the WiA Committee has chosen to focus on a theme of self-advocacy. We hope to use our forum and conference to highlight the many ways that we can advocate for ourselves that will effect positive change and progress in our personal profession journeys. When we shine our light by practicing self-advocacy we inspire other women in the architecture profession to shine their light and accomplish great things. We want your help to organize events and programs which can empower, inspire, and educate. Come share and brainstorm on how we can explore the various ways to SHINE OUR LIGHT. We want to spotlight and champion women architects. We hope you will join us this year in putting this celebration together for our WiA-LA community.


Agenda is as follows:

5:45-5:50 Join AIA|LA Zoom Call
5:50-6:00 Virtual Sign-in-Committee Chair Introductions- Group Introductions
