For the 5th annual Global Dialogues Leaning Out event, AIA-NY will host a discussion featuring pivotal leaders of several major, elite educational institutions.

At a moment when the fraught relationships of gender and power have been playing out daily in the news in arenas ranging from politics to media and the arts, a transformation has been quietly occurring in architectural academy where many top US programs now have women in key positions of leadership.

Meejin Yoon - Head of the Department of Architecture, MIT; Michelle Addington - Dean of the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture; Erika Hinrichs - Chairperson of Undergraduate Architecture, Pratt Institute; and Patrice Derrington - Director of the Center for Urban Real Estate (CURE) Columbia University (GSAPP).
