About

Advancing into Firm Leadership is the continuation of a class created with the intention of educating female architects, and design professionals, on critical firm information to support their advancement into firm leadership.
 
Women in Design has taken it under our programming umbrella as another way to advance the WID mission of connecting, empowering, and advocating for women. WID will be offering the seminar to females, and those identifying as female, designers interested in firm advancement.   We encourage you to apply if you are at least 5 years into your career, looking for education on how a company is structured, and ways to advance your leadership skills. Space in this class will be limited and preference will be shown to those actively working towards accreditation, or already accredited in your design profession.
