What are the most impactful strategies for supporting women’s advancement in the profession?
Women in Architecture (WIA), Women in Design (WID), and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committees from across the country will share their experiences and initiatives on what they are doing within their organizations to advance women in the field at the A’23 AIA Conference in San Francisco.
This exchange of information, resources, and best practices will lay the groundwork to promote and elevate women in design and leadership roles. AIA New York, San Francisco, and Boston Society of Architecture will present their chapters’ most effective programs focused on four pillars: design and leadership, workplace culture, professional practice and development, and advocacy and activism. Following the presentation and a panel discussion, 20 WIA/WID/EDI committees will facilitate a roundtable workshop to determine the top takeaways and share the feedback with the participants.
