WHAT IS THE WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP SUMMIT?

AIA Women's Leadership Summit (WLS) is one of the only gatherings where women architects and designers are surrounded by other women in a professional setting. That creates a candid, comfortable environment where women can contribute unique perspectives and facilitate conversations about challenges within the industry: Gaining respect on a construction site, negotiating, managing remote teams, getting promoted, and many others.

The first WLS began as a grassroots effort to bring together women principals of architecture firms, women in leadership positions, and women architects moving into leadership roles across the country for a‌n intense two-day summit focusing on leadership and design. Today, the summit spans a diverse spread of career stages and seeks to support all women in the profession.

  • raise the profile of women in the profession
  • explore new paths to leadership
  • create a learning environment that supports the needs of multiple career stages in one event
  • provide a space for women architects to learn from one another
