Women In Architecture- WIA

The AIA Charlotte Women In Architecture Committee represents the entire AEC community, enriching the development of women by providing opportunities for growth through networking, outreach, mentorship, and leadership. Our events and meetings focus on providing a definitive leadership resource for women amongst allied design and building industry professionals to encourage life and career development. Our goal is to provide a platform for professional women's voices to be projected throughout the AEC Industries.
