March began at 1:30 PM from Civic Center, down Market Street to Embarcadero (approximately 1.7 miles).

From steering committee Bridget Basham, Leslie Golden, Allison Kinst and Maryam Moayey Nia and OWA memebrs Janet Crane, Helen Vasquez, Leslie Moldow, Karlene Gullone, Jamie Brown and one of her friend marched together. Also Build Like a Girl joined us and we walked together through the March

Upcoming event: OWA business forumShare #1342
We are excited to announce that we will have a business forum on Tuesday 26th, from 7 -9pm. The focus of the forum is centered around the question, "how do you structure your business to support your values?"
In this forum, panelists from around the Bay Area will discuss how they came to structure/ how they hope to structure their business based on their individual and professional values. The business structures relevant to the Architectural Profession that will be discussed include B Corporations, Employee Stock Option Plans (ESOPS), and Cooperatives.
The Organization of Women Architects and Design Professionals' mission is to support women designers in all aspects of their professional and personal life. This event is proudly mission-oriented. Together with our guests Renaissance Entrepreneurship Richmond, we strive to support and provide opportunities for women and minorities into leadership positions and financial independence.
This event is open to all.
More information coming soon.
