CBT Celebrates Women in Design

This month, CBT recognizes Women’s History Month with our annual celebration of women’s accomplishments and leadership in architecture, design, and beyond! CBT Women in Design (WiD) aims to foster collaboration, inspiration, and impact – and provoke positive changes in our lives and the lives of those around us. 

Design conversations and themed panel discussions featuring influential female leaders will take place throughout the month. Our goal is to bring together bright minds that inspire us through their ideas on a wide range of subjects.
