    This panel will showcase a group of multicultural Latinas actively contributing to the architecture profession on the design technology aspect. They are making big impacts, challenging the status quo, revolutionizing the AEC industry globally. A branch 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. Their careers pivoted from the typical architecture role to the ever-evolving design technology. These are unicorn architecture professionals, they come with the design technology expertise bonus. We will discuss career trajectory, perspective, and representation. The panel will include representatives from Gensler, HMC Architects, Archsourcing, and CannonDesign.
