Members also have opportunities to be mentors themselves.
Participating in NOMA PGH has helped me advance my career in the field of Architecture. As an emerging professional, it can be hard moving to a new city and starting a career. Shortly after I moved to Pittsburgh, I became involved in NOMA PGH. By attending NOMA events, networking at those events, and receiving guidance and mentorship from NOMA members, I was able to develop professional skills which prepared me for my future as an Architect.
As minorities in Pittsburgh, our experiences in this city and the field of architecture are often met with barriers and invisible walls. NOMA PGH gives me a platform to tackle REAL issues that are below the surface. Enough talking. It’s time for change!
I believe in NOMA because everyone needs a space where they can be heard, encouraged, and inspired to make the world a better place, even one small step at a time. That’s NOMA PGH for me!
My involvement in NOMA has given me the opportunity to be a leader in our profession by advocating for equity and diversity in our workplaces and communities.
NOMA PGH provides me with an opportunity to make a positive impact on youth in Pittsburgh through Project Pipeline. Whether they pursue a career in architecture or another STEM-related field, it’s a win for the community.
