Women in Design

The Women in Design Committee celebrates women in the design professions and supports their professional development and leadership growth by providing a forum for thoughtful discussion and networking. We seek to raise the awareness and understanding of the current state of gender diversity and elevate the influence of women leaders in our profession.

The Women in Design Committee hosts evening panel discussions, book salons, dine around events, Mommy meet-ups, and co-presents monthly happy hours with the Young Architects Forum which are hosted by local architecture, construction, and built environment design firms.  In 2015, the Women in Design Committee hosted the national Women’s Leadership Summit.

The Women in Design Committee meets the last Friday of every month at noon at AIA Seattle.  Every other month, we will have a discussion topic.  To receive upcoming meeting and event details, subscribe to our email list.  AIA Seattle members, allied members and sponsors are encouraged to join as well as other professionals in the design community.
