In 2011, four women co-founded Iowa Women in Architecture as a nonprofit corporation in the state of Iowa. With combined experience of over fifty years working as practitioners and educators in architecture and urban design, the founders established Iowa Women in Architecture as a group that would examine issues related to women in architecture and related professions and serve as a resource for women at all stages in their careers.
Iowa Women in Architecture holds major quarterly events, engages in outreach activities, sponsors research initiatives, and provokes ongoing discussion within the discipline. A student chapter at Iowa State University extends these opportunities to students and faculty at the state’s only architecture program and responds to particular needs of students.
Iowa Women in Architecture is an active part of the community engaging and supporting the education and advancement of women in the profession of architecture and related professions. Recognizing that achieving equality is not attained alone, nor is it a unique struggle, Iowa Women in Architecture aims to support, interact with, and learn from all groups with the goal of equality.
