The American Institute of Architects recently announced that it’s joining forces with The National Girls Collaborative. The goal is to open up pathways for girls to achieve educational goals that would prepare them for science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers, such as architecture.

“AIA is one of the first professional associations to partner with The National Girls Collaborative to increase exposure to a profession,” said Del L. Ruff, Senior Director, Workforce and K-12 Initiatives at the AIA.

“We believe our K-12 partnerships need to be intentional and aid in ensuring the future of the architecture profession. The National Girls Collaborative is one of those partners that will aid in increasing our reach for all students.”

The NGC partners with organizations in the United States that are committed to encouraging girls to pursue STEM careers. It also manages The Connectory, a free service that is the largest directory of youth-serving STEM opportunities.

“Architecture represents an innovative blend of design and crucial STEM skills,” said Karen Peterson, CEO of NGC. “Thanks to this partnership with AIA, we are looking forward to engaging more girls in architecture activities and career paths.”

The partnership entails representation on behalf of the AIA on The NGC National Champions Board, and representation on behalf of The NGC on the AIA K-12 National Working Group.

The NGC will host a webinar from 11 a.m. to noon on March 22 to detail how architecture programs can utilize The Connectory.
