On that ocassion, they had recently published the book “To Become an Architect (a guide, mostly for women)”, a guide for new students and interns to raise money for this fund. Now, we are happy to tell you that Marla St. John became the first WIA fund award recipient ever (see more details here).
Also, during the week of AIA National Convention, WIAfund will be hosting their first Networking event in order to get together, meet, chat and speak architecture. The event will take place this Friday June 11, from 5 to 6pm in SushiSamba, 600 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, Florida. For more information, go to WIAfund’s official website.
