The Women in Architecture Committee (WIA) is composed of women architects and allies in the Chapter for the purpose of increasing the incidence and visibility of women in architecture and in related design and construction industries. We exist to bring awareness to the gender disparity that exists in the profession in order to achieve equality. We exist to empower women by fostering growth, building leaders and role models, promoting the success of women architects, serving as a catalyst for equality and fair treatment, bringing about balance in the profession, and by redefining success.

2016 EQxD Symposium Volunteers Needed!

Posted By Patricia Galván, Tuesday, July 26, 2016

AIASF's Equity by Design Committee is looking for On-Site Volunteers on Friday, October 28th and Saturday October 29th for the 2016 EQxD Symposium.


On-Site Volunteers will receive the student ticket price for the event, $50 per person (AIA member price will be $150).  Please contact Julia Mandell before August 1st if you would like to be an On-Site Volunteer.


Tasks will include helping with the Friday night reception, Saturday morning set-up, Saturday end of day clean-up, morning registration check-in, A/V needs, props, etc. You will be assigned to a couple of tasks throughout the day, the specifics of which will come later. Tasks should not get in the way of your attendance at any of the sessions. Not everyone will be required for Friday night or Saturday set-up/clean-up, but expect to be available to attend the Friday evening reception at Autodesk Gallery from 6-8pm 10/28 and to be available to be on-site at SFAI from 7am through 6:30pm on Saturday.  Specific tasks will be assigned in late September/early October with at least 3 weeks notice before the event, so you can make plans for coming and going, attending the receptions Friday and Saturday, Dine-Abouts, etc.  Also, please pass this on to anyone else you think may be interested, such as others in your firm. 


If you'd like to volunteer or have any questions, feel free to contact Julia:
