Join ULI Pittsburgh’s Women’s Leadership Initiative as they partner with AIA Pittsburgh’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee for “Built by Women : How would women design cities differently”.
The workshop will assemble women leaders and innovators together to examine how our city can evolve to be more equitable, diverse and inclusionary from a viewpoint of women in our community. The event also focuses on keynote speaker, Architect, Planner, and Sasaki Foundation Chair, Mary Anne Ocampo, followed by six local women from across various interrelated fields within real estate and design that will lead to small table conversations to discuss ideas and experiences that women bring to the field and how we can continue to transform our lived environment to be more inclusive for all. We will have conversations about rethinking the design and planning of our city to support equity, inclusion and that support women. The program builds upon a panel discussion conducted virtually in 2021 and proposes an in-person round table workshop that assembles women leaders and innovators to examine how our city can evolve to be more equitable, diverse, and inclusionary from the viewpoint of women in our community.
