Women In Architecture Silicon Valley


Join us at our next WIA event

2018 WIA Events

This year’s WIA events theme is “structures of power”. These “structures” can be internal or external; they can be psychological, societal, spatial, or digital. We hope that, through this year’s events, we will gain insight into the social and cultural structures we work within, and how to negotiate and balance moments of leading with moments of following. The cycle will be split into three parts:

  • Structuring Self (Spring) – how to design and develop a career for yourself
  • Negotiating Structures (Summer) – strategies for advancement and communication
  • Expanding Structures (Autumn) – connecting with industries, events, and topics beyond architecture

Join us at the events listed below to explore these power structures with us.

Want to learn how to get more people to pay attention when you’re speaking? Interested in improving your presentation skills? Join the WIA’s viewing of Amy Cuddy’s TED Talk about improving your body language. All are welcome, so bring a friend or colleague! The viewing of the TED Talk video will begin at 6pm, following a short introduction by the committee. After the screening, we will break into smaller groups for a constructive post-talk discussion and workshop. We look forward to seeing you there!

Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

Did you know, the way you are sitting right now could change the way people think of you without even knowing it?

In this talk Amy Cuddy, social psychologist and expert on non-verbal behavior, delves deep into the idea of body language. She reveals how much our body language affects how we are perceived by the people around us, and even the impression we have of ourselves.
