We are a Professional Society dedicated to supporting women in architecture and allied design fields

The Association for Women in Architecture + Design’s mission is to advance and support women who work in the built environment. We encourage and foster high levels of achievement by providing innovative and informative programming, one on one as well as group mentoring, special programs and events, and illuminating career opportunities for students as well as professionals. We also provide scholarships and a mid-career fellowship via our Foundation, sister organization, AWAF. We do this through an open inclusive environment that facilitates relationships and comradery for people at every stage of their career.
