We are pleased to present the 5th Annual AIANY Global Dialogues Leaning Out event “Women in Academic Leadership Now,” the final presentation of the Global Dialogues Committee’s Displacements Series. This discussion will feature pivotal leaders of several major elite educational institutions. As fraught gender and power relationships play out daily in the news in arenas ranging from politics to media and the arts, a transformation is occurring quietly in the architectural academy. Today, many top US programs now have women in key positions of influence. As the discipline evolves, how are these leaders preparing the next generation of students to assume the mantle of leadership in practice?
