On December 7, AIANY Women in Architecture held its last event for the year 2022 at the Center for Architecture with one of the committee’s core programs: Speed Mentoring. The sold-out event provided the participants an opportunity to network with 15 accomplished practitioners with 20+ years of experience as mentors. They range from Firm Founders, Principals, Directors, and AIANY Chapter Presidents, and offered the mentees valuable advice for career development and goals.  Attendees met in small groups with a mentor, along with other professionals across multiple levels of experience. There were three engaging, 20-minute sessions for the discussions which ended with a few mentors and mentees sharing their takeaways.

We are grateful for the time and support from the mentors, which contributed to a successful event. The WIA Committee is looking forward to starting the new year with more impactful events like the Speed Mentoring and continuing to promote, elevate, and advance women in the architecture profession. SEE YOU ALL SOON IN 2023!
