Women in architecture
Women in architecture are a dynamic and influential segment in the profession, but when looking at leadership roles we also ask-Where are they? AIA supports a diverse profession and part of this effort is directed at women through leadership development, career resources, and a strong peer network. With this support, increasing prominence, and a greater sense of belonging, women are transforming the profession now and will continue to do so for future generations.
