STEM Fair: Women in the Design And Building Industry

January 20, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Washington Architectural Foundation’s Design Like A Girl program is opening its doors to girls in the Washington Metro area to meet women in the whole range of design-related fields — architecture, engineering, construction, urban planning, landscape architecture, interior design. Join us for hands-on activities, learn about programs for girls offered by WAF and our partner organizations, talk with girls who are already involved. Register for this event today!

The goal of the “Design Like a Girl” programs is to encourage girls to consider architecture as a possible career. The mentor program pairs middle schools girls ages 11-13 that are passionate about architecture with mentors from the Architecture, Construction, and Engineering fields so that they can learn about a professional career first-hand from successful women in these professions. WAF hopes to open a door that might eventually lead to greater gender equality in a profession that needs it.
