Cultivating Your Path to Fellowship
Reverse Engineering the FAIA Submission Process to Develop Meaning & Purpose in Practice
Four, 1-hour sessions starting Wednesday, January 25th.
4 AIA LU | Elective
Too often AIA members approach achieving Fellowship at the end of a significant phase of their career. The result is the demographic composition of the College of Fellows remains predominantly older, white males. These sessions seek to elevate diversity in the College’s ranks by teaching young and mid-career architects to reverse engineer their path to Fellowship using the AIA’s Sample Application, a specialized outline, storytelling techniques, and writing basics to define and amplify their voices and accomplishments. This method advances meaning and intention in attendees’ career paths and, ultimately, will bring younger and more diverse professionals to advancing the mission and leadership of the College of Fellows and its grant funding activities.
Mapping a career around AIA Fellowship provides a path to positively impact others and elevate the value, potential and reach of the many career paths architects take. Attendees will gain inspiration on finding time for introspection, planning and preparation to explore, define and elevate meaning in practice.
