The mission of the AIA Brooklyn Women in Architecture (BKWIA) Committee is to identify, support and encourage the individual strengths of Women in Architecture (and related professions) and through activities and outreach, develop a network that promotes diversity, leadership and the overall well-being of its members. The vision is to ultimately have an engaged community of people who are interested in the connection and value building of women.
