BWA – Black women in architecture network (Website under construction)

Brunch networking events
In November 2015, I hosted the first BWA Brunch in Washington DC. Over 30 women attended to enjoy food, fellowship and fun. Read about it here.

A second brunch event was held April 2016 with over 40 attendees.

The most recent BWA Brunch DC took place September 17, 2017. (Flyer)

Social Media

Connect on Facebook.

As of July 2017, there are only 399 licensed BWAs, about .4% of all licensed architects. It is important to share our story. I did not meet a BWA until I was in college and there were two teaching at my college.

I am committed to helping other black women in architecture meet each other and support one another.

Future Book
It is important for us to tell our story. I am creating a book that would be a great resource for my students. Students, from middle school to college, need to know that they can succeed in this field and see role models who look like them. Share your story: write a letter to your 20 year old self.
