Ever been asked what your five year plan is & not known what to say?
Ever wondered how to find ‘your map’ in your career?
In this candid conversation between Mia & her special guest, Tamara Roy, architect & principal at Stantec’s Boston office, we’ll cover how there’s no ‘one map’ (spoiler, you have to make your own) & how to get started crafting your own career direction. Tamara will share the not always straightforward path she’s taken in her career, some of the challenges she’s faced as a woman in an often male-dominated field,& how she’s found ways to move forward in her career on her own terms.
Mia Scharphie is a creative agent of change, a do-er and big-picture thinker. She founded Build Yourself to help women in creative fields move past the obstacles that hold them back in in their careers, & to make those workplaces better places for women’s talent. Mia is a trained facilitator & has worked on women’s advocacy for over fifteen years. She’s run a research effort on women in social impact design for the Harvard Business School, is a founding member of the Equity Roundtable at the Boston of Architects, & was named as one of Impact Design Hub’s Social Impact Design 40 under 40. Her writings on issues of equity in design have been published in the Christian Science Monitor and GOOD.
Named one of Boston’s Top 50 Power Women In Real Estate & the 2016 President of the Boston Society of Architects, Tamara is an architect & urban designer specializing in multifamily residential, academic, & commercial projects. Her housing portfolio includes over 1500 affordable & market rate units. She was the senior designer for the MassArt ‘Treehouse’, described as ‘the ‘the most interesting Boston high rise in years’ by the Boston Globe. Tamara received her B.Arch from Carnegie-Mellon University & her Masters of Urban Design & Architecture from the Berlage Institute, an international think-tank in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
