October 14, 2021 / AIA

GGLO Architectural Designer Whitney Lewis has been selected by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for their Next to Lead program. Next to Lead is the first program of its kind to support association leadership for ethnically diverse women aspiring to be leaders of the AIA. 17 candidates were selected by jurors from AIA’s Equity and the Future of Architecture Committee (EQFA) who conducted a blind review of applications and reference letters.

Next to Lead is a two-phase program, launching Oct. 15, which will be followed by an online curriculum and monthly virtual sessions focusing on association leadership during 2022. In the second phase, participants will work on a collaborative project developed with a local or state component or a knowledge-based group within the AIA.
