As we conclude 2021, the AIANY Women in Architecture Committee wants to THANK YOU for your support and continued interest in our programs and events. It sure has been a memorable year for WIA! Despite the COVID pandemic, our committee had carried out 20 incredible events, both virtually and in-person, ending with the well-attended Design and Practice Exchange: Navigating the (Post) Pandemic Terrain on November 19 and 20. After a very busy year, the Women in Architecture Committee will be taking a small break. In January, the WIA Steering Committee will finalize the schedule for an exciting 2022, with more relevant and insightful programs and events that reflect the survey responses received from all of you back in September.

We will resume our Monthly Committee Meeting on Wednesday, February 16, 2022. Mark your calendars now!

In closing, we want to launch the call for entries for the 11th Annual Women in Architecture Recognition Award, which honors one recently licensed woman architect in 2021 who demonstrates strong leadership skills and commitment to the growth and advancement of our profession. Download the announcement PDF here. The deadline for submission is January 7, 2022. We will announce the award recipient during the WIA Annual New Year’s Party. Fisher & Paykel will host the Party at their Experience Center on Thursday, January 27, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

On behalf of the AIANY Women in Architecture Committee, we wish you all a wonderful and safe Holiday Season! We cannot wait to see you all again soon in the new year!!!

With gratitude and regards,
