Leadership in Uncertainty: An Honest Conversation on Challenges & Change


Women face both challenges—and opportunities—as they navigate a career in architecture. From work-life balance and gender-based assumptions to glass ceilings and even go-it-alone entrepreneurship, women often encounter obstacles to finding right-fit roles, upward mobility, and workplace fair play. What’s more, the COVID-19 pandemic has surfaced new challenges that are still being overcome and solutions still to be discovered. Join us for this candid and mindful discussion on the challenges and opportunities that women in architecture face today, as leaders share stories and identify solutions to the obstacles they have encountered this year.
