A mentoring seminar event series
You Will Prevail
Anik Pearson, Principal at Anik Pearson Architect P.C., and Nancy Kleppel, Principal at Nancy Kleppel Consulting, invite young women in the profession of architecture to engage in conversations with experienced female professionals on a myriad of successful career trajectories. Each event will feature two inspiring women working in architecture and each will speak to a different focus - from starting your own practice, to finding the right type of practice for you, to balancing the profession and family life. In these conversations we will share stories, share tools, provide support and establish relationships among all attendees with the goal of ensuring young women in architecture stay encouraged and stay on course to thrive in the profession.
Schedule of Events
The first seminar in this event series will be held this coming Fall of 2019. Each seminar will be a 2-hour session hosted at the office of one of the evening’s mentors within the metropolitan New York area. The sessions will begin with a meet-and-greet, followed by mentor presentations, then questions, and conversations over cocktails. A group of 16 young, intern-level women will be hosted during each seminar to ensure all mentees can interact closely with the mentors. Please see below for dates, topics, mentor bios and to sign up!
