Whether you are an early career designer looking for tools that lead to a successful career, a firm partner interested in raising your office’s profile, or an established mid-career architect ready to move forward, Powerful V, the WiA AIA|LA’s conference dedicated to equity, provides support.
Since the AIA|LA established the Powerful V conference in 2015, it has seen the profile of women rise. Not just in the architecture profession, but in others. Led by the WIA AIA|LA committee, Powerful V taps into this wave. In 2018, the committee adds compelling global figures from multiple disciplines to Powerful’s dynamic programming mix of: internationally acclaimed architectural leaders, break-out sessions tailored to individual interests, informative panels, and tool kits for success.
