This committee 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, being a catalyst to equality and fair treatment, bringing about balance in the profession, and by redefining success.
The WIA Committee will commence as a group that supports equality and women’s issues. As our group gains momentum, grows and diversifies we welcome the notion of evolving into a Diversity Committee, of which the WIA committee and other similar minority committees would become subgroups as suggested by the AIASCV Board.
