April Women in Architecture Program
Please join AIACOC Women in Architecture and AIAEOK Women in Design on Wednesday, April 28th from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. as Wendy Thomas, Executive Director of Leadership Tulsa leads us through a workshop where we will discover our own personal leadership style. $25 for AIA EOK and AIA COC members, $40 for non-AIA members. (Space is limited).

Registration deadline: March 31, 2021, 5:00pm

The goal of the ILS Workshop is to significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of how we communicate, make decisions and work within teams. In this highly interactive workshop each participant will:
• Increase their awareness of interpersonal styles; their own and others’ strengths and “behavioral blind spots.”
• Become aware of and appreciate differences in others’ styles.
• Learn how workplace stress impacts behavior in very predictable ways.
• Improve their ability to build more effective working relationships, despite stylistic differences, by learning how to become situationally flexible.

Each participant will be asked to take a brief 10-minute survey to determine their ILS style. The survey is administered online prior to the workshop. Based on the results the participants will be given an individual report along with a group report. The workshop includes discussion and activities that explore the implications of their individual styles and their organizational dynamics. There is no one-size-fits-all leadership style; the goal is to highlight the importance of leveraging our strengths and flexing our styles in different situations.

Continuing Education Opportunity on April 7th at 12:00 p.m. via Zoom
Silicone Coatings: An Alternative to Ceramic Frit for Spandrel Glass (1 HSW)

This course will provide architects and designers education about silicone-based coating technologies that can be specified as an alternative to ceramic frit for spandrel glass applications. Attendees will learn how spandrel glass is used on a facade for aesthetic value and functionality. Specific factors related to high-performance silicone coatings will be discussed including sustainability, thermal stress breakage mitigation, facade visual harmonization, and color matching capabilities.
Learning Objectives:
1) Definition of high-performance silicone coatings as a healthy and sustainable alternative to other spandrel glass materials
2) Rigorous testing to prove longevity and application suitability
3) Considerations when specifying silicone coatings on spandrel glass
4) Advantages of using silicone coatings in design to prevent hazardous solvent, heavy metals, and high VOCs in the environment
