About the Event

Please join Women+ in Design Pittsburgh as we welcome Despina Stratigakos, author of "Where Are the Women Architects?," and Lori Brown, founder of ArchiteXX, a group dedicated to transforming the architecture profession for women, to Pittsburgh. 

In partnership with students and faculty at the University of Pittsburgh, we will be adding and expanding entries for women designers across industries including architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, graphic design, and engineering to the online resource.   

No prior Wikipedia editing experience is necessary, lists of female designers will be provided, and additional entry ideas are welcome. Computers will be available, but you may bring your own laptop. Tutorials for beginner Wikipedians will begin at 10 am, and you are free to come and go as you wish throughout the event. Breakfast will be provided.  

People of all genders and professions are encouraged to attend as we increase the visibility and representation of women designers.  

AIA Pittsburgh will be providing refreshments.

This event is supported in part by funding from Pitt Creates Year of Creativity.
