In Honor of International Women's Day 2018, AIA Seattle celebrates the women of our organization.
2018 International Women’s Day theme, Press for Progress, was a call to action to advance gender parity across all sectors of life and is especially relevant to the architectural profession, where women account for 25%, and only 17% of firm leadership. The AIA champions a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion within the profession to create a better environment for all, and believes that achieving this vision has a direct impact on the relevance of our profession and the world’s prosperity, health, and future.
