HAPPENINGS / Empower Women
International Women’s Day
In recognition of International Women’s Day, Neumann/Smith is celebrating the incredible achievements of women in the architecture field throughout history and in our firm. Famous names like Zaha Hadid, Norma Merrick Sklarek, and Lina Bo Bardi have become legendary for their pioneering designs, dedication to innovation, and progressivism. Their contributions to architecture over the years has made a lasting impact on both the industry and humanity as a whole.
In our firm, names like JoEllen, Sherry, and Kathy will continue to inspire us. Our range of professionals include architects, designers, specifications writers, and marketers driven to design a better world for current and future generations. In honor of these inspiring women, we encourage fellow industry members to join us in celebrating their successes – both past and present – so that they may serve as an example for generations that follow them. To showcase our female team members, we asked them to proudly share their advice and experience.
Architects play a key role in shaping the built environment, and it is critical that our work reflects the diversity of the communities they serve. Diversity Month is an opportunity to recognize and embrace the differences that make each of us unique. In the architecture industry, it provides a platform to showcase the contributions of diverse architects, highlight the importance of inclusive design, and explore the significance of diversity in architecture.More
