POWERFUL is the AIA|LA's fourth conference featuring inspirational and energetic presentations that showcase women who are leading the design profession.
This year the symposium moves to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in recognition of women’s rising star in the design field, and the event’s popularity. All three previous Powerful conferences sold out.
Powerful IV’s growing list of international and nationally acclaimed headliners marks the success of this conference series, and the growing influence of the AIA|LA’s Women in Architecture committee,

In addition to an array of speakers and panels who will address the topics of community advocacy, professional empowerment for women, and design as a catalyst for change, Powerful IV marks the return of the popular lunchtime break-out sessions. These break-out sessions provide opportunities for attendees to drill down and learn more about topic of their choice, in depth, with mentors in small groups.
POWERFUL is a premiere event in the AIA|LA's October 2017 LArchitecture Month series.
