Women in Leadership – Meadowlands USA article

AIA New Jersey’s Second Vice President Kim Vierheilig, AIA, was interviewed by Meadowlands USA magazine and spoke about AIA’s role in mentoring in the profession.  In the article, along with Sally Glick, principal and chief growth strategist at Sobel & Co., they spoke about challenges in their respective fields.

In the article Vierheilig shared:
“When I first started out of college there was basically no kind of networking group or anything that was geared to women. Now you have so much stuff and people are willing to actually share stories. I think that Women in Architecture is a platform to me to try and reach out and help women who are coming out of college, who maybe don’t know exactly where their careers want to lead them.”
