The AIANY Women in Architecture Committee organized the WIA Practitioner | Student Mentoring Session on November 6, 2019 at the Center for Architecture with a great turnout of 37 students from City Tech, The Cooper Union, and Princeton, along with 33 women mentors who have 10+ years of experience as practicing architects in New York City.

Female students from these schools received valuable advice from the mentors on their resumes and portfolios and gained useful takeaways from the professional guidance in preparing them to start their career path. The also had a chance to network with other practitioners and meet students from the participating schools.

AIANY WIA is truly grateful to all the dedicated mentors who have volunteered their time, and for being role models to these female students, helping them advance in our profession. We would also like to give special thanks to the academic staff of City Tech, The Cooper Union and Princeton for the support in making this event possible.

Stay tuned for the next WIA Practitioner | Student Spring Mentoring Session on March 23, 2020.
