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.
