POWERFUL: Women Leading Design, 2nd AIA|LA Symposium
September 25, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us at the AIA|LA’s second symposium to focus on expanding the role of women in design. Dedicated to gender equity and increasing diversity, POWERFUL recognizes that the contributions of architecture as a whole cannot be realized until the possibilities inherent in all practitioners are engaged equally.
The event includes time at breakfast and lunch for one-to-one and group conversations, as well as more than thirty-five inspiring, illuminating speakers. A happy hour tops off the day. Seating is limited. Please book early.
“I encourage women to work from a place of confidence, to take risks and not worry about conforming to the established norm of success. We need to acknowledge more aspirations than the anachronistic Ayn Rand hero,” says speaker Julie Eizenberg, FAIA.
Presented by Gensler, the conference convenes on Friday, October 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at SCI-Arc in Downtown Los Angeles.
