GUEST SPEAKER - Megan Sanchez - Committee Meeting: Women in Design

The Women in Design Committee meets on the fourth Thursday of every month at 12pm. Every other month, we will have a discussion topic. AIA Seattle members, allied members and sponsors are encouraged to join as well as other professionals in the design community.

Amidst our office transitions and return to hints of normalcy, we have a huge opportunity to reintroduce humanity back into the workplace. Never has there been a more opportune time to prioritize the discussion on mental health and burnout prevention within architecture and design. In this session we’ll challenge the notion of self-sacrifice as a prerequisite for success and shed light on the steps we can take for change – first for ourselves as individuals and then for the wellbeing of our organizations.

Megan Sanchez is a certified professional coach and the founder of UpSwing Health Coaching, based in Washington, DC. Upon leaving the agency world of brand and environmental graphics, she made it her mission to challenge the grind-crash-repeat mindset of today’s workforce. She is also the founder of ByDesign, a virtual course and community that addresses the unique challenges of burnout and mental health for women in allied fields of the built environment including design, construction, engineering and real estate.
