Please join the AIANY Women In Architecture Committee for a special event, “In Dialogue With…A Conversation Between Two Friends about Race” at our September monthly committee meeting. After our regular announcements, Rosalind Tsang, AIANY WIA Committee Advisory Board Member and Gaylin M. Bowie, Associate/Senior Project Manager at Robert A. M. Stern Architects, will have a candid conversation about race. Rosalind, who is Chinese-Canadian and Gaylin, who is Caribbean-American will discuss how race has played a part in their lives. They will discuss the point of discovery when they first became aware of race at a young age, their journey and navigation in their professional and personal lives, how race has influenced how they see the world, and lastly, the next steps for what they envision for the future. This will be followed by an open discussion with all attendees.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN US! We look forward to seeing you and thank you in advance for your participation and support.
