We can’t do it alone.  In our built environment, we don’t just build things, we build aspirations for all people. That’s why this year in Houston AISC has partnered with AIA Houston Women in Architecture Committee to celebrate SteelDay by sharing not only the story of women in the steel trade, but also the story for how we can achieve diversity, inclusion , and equity for all people pursuing careers in the trades and in the AEC professions as part of building a stronger future.  The evening begins by a stellar panel discussion comprised by local trailblazing leaders in the AEC fields and  will culminate with a brisk night of networking over cocktails, bites, and a tour of the sculpture-esque Moody Center for the Arts.

Panel Discussion 6-7 PM

      Panelists: Anzilla Gilmore, FAIA, NOMA, Assistant Director for Project Management & Engineering, Rice University; Cynthia Hua, LEED GA, DBIA Associate, Project Manager, Turner Construction; Mary Jo Emrick, Professor, Austin Community College; Jorge Carranza, Principal, Newberry Architecture, Jennifer Traut-Todaro, SE, LEED AP, Senior Steel Solutions Center Adviser, AISC.
