AWA+D and our sister organization AWAF (the Foundation) offer Individuals and Organizations numerous ways to support women across the design industry. In general, there are three ways to gain exposure to our members and broader mailing list:


Annual Sponsorships ($1,500 - $5,000) not only allow AWA+D to fulfill its mission of supporting women in the industry, but it allows enhanced programming, mentoring and educational opportunities. For sponsoring organizations, it provides a 12-month platform for our members to understand your business across a variety of platforms and experiences. 


Event Sponsorships ($250 - $500) are a flexible way for organizations or individuals to support AWA+Dā€™s efforts at singular events such as our Annual Symposium, or through an event series such as our Urban Draw series, the monthly Salon series, or even our Cocktails & series geared towards educational topics.
