Women's Leadership Summit

AIA is conducting new research on women in architecture leadership, and we need your help. Please take a short survey and tell us about your educational needs, career development strategies, leadership opportunities, and areas for improvement for all women in architecture. Take the survey >

The first AIA Women’s Leadership Summit (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.

Summit goals:

  • raise the profile of women in the profession
  • share and promote the design work of women
  • explore new paths to leadership
  • provide education opportunities related to women in the profession
  • learn from one another
