Following our regular announcements of upcoming Women in Architecture and related events at our February Committee Meeting, we are honored to have Mimi S. Raygorodetsky, Environmental Practice Leader at Langan Engineering and founding member of Women@Langan, share her presentation Gender Equity: Why It Matters- Industry Best Practices for Recruiting, Retaining, and Advancing Our Women. Interestingly, Mimi also holds a Diploma in Wine and Spirits from the Wine and Spirits Educational Trust and will be our sommelier for the evening, offering and explaining curated wines to taste.
Committee meetings are open to the public, no RSVP is needed.
We look forward to seeing you, and thank you for your participation and support.
Mimi Raygorodetsky has spent the last 20 years cleaning brownfields as part of land development in New York City, and is currently a practice leader for Langan’s Environmental Group in its New York office. In this capacity, she sources and directs large, complex environmental remediation and redevelopment projects from the earliest stages of pre-development diligence, through the remediation/construction phase, to long-term operation and monitoring of remedial systems and engineering controls. Her projects have helped define the New York City skyline, including the IAC Building, Greenpoint Landing, 420 Kent Avenue, Plaxall sites in Long Island City, and Willets Point. Ms. Raygorodetsky is an integral part of several groups and organizations focused on helping women succeed, most notably Women@Langan. This firm-wide organization provides a forum for women to develop a community, mentor and support colleagues, and form an internal and external professional network. Ms. Raygorodetsky is committed to fostering an atmosphere of mentorship and support to empower women to achieve career and personal success.

Committees meet monthly, usually at the Center for Architecture. AIA members, AIA associate members, and general public are all welcome to participate.
