    “Green is the new Blue Sky” Sustainable awareness, BIM & CAD design, and building are creating limitless opportunities for Architects and Engineers to thrive through the 21st century.

      I agree that the dynamics of sustainability & BIM have converges to open up inifinite possibilities to Architects and Engineers. As African-Americans,we cannot be afraid of it and must take time to understand their potential in this new global market.

    My six words = “Glass ceiling is made of Acrylic”

    Architecture has historically been an institution where minority progression has been limited to the designer or Senior Draftsman levels – if that. Even though there appears to be more opportunities to get into firm leadership, that glass ceiling still seems imbreakable as a whole. We need more advocators to push minorities into firm leadership position to truly diversify the profession.

      Seems to be very true Erika, I am a fairly recent graduate and have found close to zero opportunities to even my foot in the door. I would be interested in hearing your insight…

        As a seasoned professional transitioning from military to the private sector, I suggest casting a wide net. Use job search sites like indeed.com, ladders.com and linkedin. If you have not, try usajobs.gov as well. The Air Force has a program called Palace Acquire to bring in entry level architects as well. There are many locations around the country, some very remote, so be ready to relocate if you really want the work. SiteAdmin: AC Stafford
