  • FREE event open to non-members (does require advance registration)

On January 14, 2023, women, non-binary people, and people of the LGBTQ+ community gathered at a NOMAarizona and AIA PHX Metro DEI hosted Coffee Talk at the McKinley Club to discuss the struggles, issues, values, successes, and impacts these communities face within the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry.

This conversation collected information that is transforming into an educational workshop and conversation series to talk about welcoming gender inclusion and support in the workplace. We appreciate your patience with us as we develop this highly sought-after programming. The people behind planning these sessions are taking special care to consider the many insights from a very diverse group. We will do our best to address the most critical elements from your input with the goal to expand these conversations beyond the rooms they occur in.

Join us on Tuesday, May 23 at the AIA Arizona office for a reception and a panel discussion.
