As organizations navigate some of the most massive shifts in history in our globally connected and increasingly digital world, the role of enterprise architecture has never been more critical. As a global discipline and community of practitioners, we are going to need every one of us to be at our best to help navigate the changes and challenges ahead – and to make sure that the business models and technology of today create a collective tomorrow that we all want to live in.

As we prepare to rise to this occasion, there is a shocking truth about the discipline of architecture to consider though: only around 10% of architect roles are performed by women. In a time when we need the greatest diversity of ideas, perspectives, approaches, talents, and experiences, as well as sheer capacity, we are operating at a significant disadvantage.

However, more and more women are becoming architects as well as moving into leadership roles. They are strong contributors and are shaping architecture in new and unique ways that expand and enhance the entire discipline. Now we just need to take it to the next level with intent and commitment.

In this session Paul Preiss will host a panel of the leaders of the WIA to discuss what the goals and objectives of the organization..
