Join Us at the 2011 Women’s Leadership Summit

Registration for the AIA Women’s Leadership Summit is now open! This 2-day national conversation among the profession’s top female practitioners will explore topics in Leadership and Design.

Leadership expert and Harvard GSD speaker Julie Benezet will open the Friday session with a highly interactive session that will talk about what drives people to lead, the fears that get in the way and strategies for working through those fears.

 A large focus of the Design discussion will be on design in the media.  Saturday’s discussion will be held in the internationally-acclaimed Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Bloch Building, designed by Steven Holl.  Keynote speaker Susan Szenasy, Editor in Chief of METROPOLIS, will present a ‘Design Report’ on the current pulse of the industry, highlighting the firms, individuals and trends that are breaking new ground in architecture. Susan will then facilitate a dialogue with a group of experts and journalists, including S. Claire Conroy, Editorial Director of Residential Architect magazine, discussing ways to share your message with a growing audience.

Join the conversation in Kansas City, September 23rd and 24th. More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks, so make your plans to attend now!

This event will also be hosting a continuous live chat via Twitter (@AIAWLS) throughout all sessions during the two-day conference to share highlights of the event as well as take questions and comments.
