Career Paths in Architecture @ UBC AMS Nest

 
There are many directions one can take with one’s career following an architectural education.  A dynamic group of women working in and around the field of architecture will each do a very brief presentation of the varying paths on which architecture has taken them.  Presentations to be followed by panel discussion.

The presenters/panellists will be:
•    Barbara Gordon – Facilities Planner, UBC 
•    Carman Kwan – Principal, Hearth Architectural Inc.
•    Danica Djurkovic – Director of Facilities Planning and Development, City of Vancouver
•    Kirsten Reite – Principal, Kirsten Reite Architecture
•    Kristalina Dinovsky-Kutev – Senior Associate, Kasian
•    Latty Kashani – Workplace Consultant, Brooks Corning

Learning objectives will be:
•    The architectural profession has a need for many roles and strengths, in the varied aspects    
     of practicing architecture.  These women each fill certain roles, following their individual strengths,      
     areas of comfort, ambitions, aspirations, and opportunities.
•    What challenges women face in their architectural careers that may lead them into certain career
     positions.
•    What inspirations or motivations might lead someone down a particular career path.  
 
This is also a great opportunity to see the newly opened UBC AMS Nest (new student union building).
