    This panel will showcase a group of multicultural Latinas actively contributing to the architecture profession on the aspect of design technology. They’re making big impacts, challenging the status quo, and revolutionizing the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry globally. This is an arena dominated by men, where women represent a small percentage of the architecture professionals with this particular expertise—a much smaller number representing the Latin American community and going beyond gender. These women’s careers pivoted from the typical architecture role to embrace ever-evolving design technology. Unicorn architecture professionals, they come with the design technology expertise bonus. We’ll discuss career trajectory, perspective, and representation. The panel will include representatives from Gensler, HMC Architects, ARCHSOURCING, and CannonDesign.
