SEMINAR: First 500: Infinitely Increasing

  • Co-Prosperity Sphere 3219 South Morgan Street Chicago, IL, 60608 United States (map)

Join Tiara Hughes of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP for an hour-long seminar about FIRST 500, a research endeavor that is primarily focused on highlighting African American women architects (0.3% of all architects) and raising awareness of their distinction. FIRST 500 has already begun as a lecture series (featured in publications, podcasts and conferences) and a network. Eventually this project will become a publication highlighting each of the licensed African American women architects. The publication will serve as a central resource for all their stories to inspire young girls interested in entering the industry and the network to provide a place of mentorship when they do.
