Welcome to Posse Empowerment

Creating equitable representation of females in the STEAM industry.
POSSE: a Latin word meaning Empowerment.
I used to not like being called a 'woman architect.' I'm an architect, not just a woman architect. The guys used to tap me on the head and say 'you're OK for a girl.' But I see an incredible amount of need from other women for reassurance that it can be done, so I don't mind anymore
