The Zambia Institute of Architects this year participated in the Women’s Day match under the theme “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”. The institute was represented by Female Architects and supported by a couple of male colleagues. The group consisted of both the younger and senior members.
The match started from Zesco Headquarters ending at the Lusaka Show Grounds with a match past in front of the Head of State.
Later in the evening Female Architects were celebrated and honoured by the Graduate Women Zambia for their active role in the Construction Industry at a glamourous fund raising dinner at the Mulungushi Conference Centre.
And in line with the ZIA Mentorship Programme, two groups of the Female Architects conducted career talks to pupils at Northmead Secondary School and Munali Boys Secondary School on Thursday 7th March 2019. The career talks included topics like 1). What is Architecture 2). Entry Requirements to Study Architecture and 3). Career Prospects for Architects.
The talks were very motivating to the pupils as well as the participating Female Architects
