In 1987 Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month to recognize, honor, and celebrate the achievements of American women.
This year, in honor of Women’s History Month, the Potomac Chapter has put together a special session celebrating three distinguished women leaders whose incredible careers have shaped the landscape of Metro-Washington region, mentored countless aspiring landscape architecture students and designers, and set the stage for future women leaders in our midst. Join them on March 29, 2023, to hear these women trailblazers reflecting on their unique journey.
EDAW was an international landscape architecture, urban and environmental design firm that operated from 1939 until 2009. Joe Brown started the EDAW DC office in 1974. The firm grew to become the most commercially successful and well-known landscape architecture and urbanism firm in the world, which at its peak had 32 offices worldwide. EDAW led many landscape architecture, land planning and master planning projects, developing a reputation as an early innovator in sustainable urban development and multidisciplinary design. EDAW was part of the careers of all three of our panelists and our moderator.
