How It All Began
The “Shadow an Architect” program began at the AIA 2007 National Convention and Design Exposition in San Antonio and was sponsored by the AIA Diversity Committee. Its purpose is to introduce students from traditionally underrepresented groups to the profession of architecture.
During that first year, fifty-five high school and community college students shadowed architect mentors for a day, attending the General Session and touring the Expo floor.
The Shadow an Architect Program was expanded to include the Grassroots conference as well as convention, and has since become an annual event sponsored by the Board Diversity Council.
