Women's Leadership Summit
Fall 2022 in Silicon Valley
AIA's Women's Leadership Summit (WLS) is one of the only gatherings where women architects and designers are surrounded by other women in a professional setting. That creates a candid, comfortable environment where women can feel a greater sense of support and beloging within the male-dominated industry. WLS delivers strategies for accelerated career advancement through advanced business knowledge, personal empowerment, focused networking, and proactive career management targeting women architects moving into leadership roles at architecture firms.

AIA has combined continuing education with wellness activities, promoting the idea that health and professional development go hand in hand. Although the architecture industry has historically struggled to retain women architects, more women today are finding ways to make the industry work for them.
WLS exists to help you do just that.
