Celebrating Women in Architecture and Real Estate

September was a celebration of Women in Architecture in Washington, DC. Nakita Reed of Encore Sustainable Design attended the AIA Women’s Leadership Summit’s Opening Reception, the WIDEA (Women Inspiring Design, Equity in Architecture) Events, as well as AAREP’s (African American Real Estate Professionals) session called Meet the Women “What It’s Really Like Being a Woman in Commercial Real Estate”.

Reed also had the pleasure of introducing Roberta Washington, FAIA at the Black Women in Architecture Brunch lecture titled Hidden Figures in Architecture.  This lecture gave the historical account of the numerous African American Women who worked as licensed architects or as lead designers in the architecture profession.

“I learned more about the impact of black women in the field of architecture through this one hour lecture than I did in all of my formal education.  I knew of Norma Merrick Sklarek but didn’t know of the numerous women before her“, said Reed.
