Recently, we were asked to open our COLLECTIVE lounge doors and host the first annual anniversary social for W.I.A., a local organization charged with educating, mentoring and advocating for women in architecture here in Salt Lake. Our reply was an enthusiastic, "yes," and the evening was, as expected, an enlightening and engaging success. Libations flowed freely, hors d'oeuvres vanished, and mingling ensued. It was pretty clear that everyone in attendance [and it was a packed lounge] was as enthusiastic about supporting such a lofty cause as we were. Hats off to those leading the charge. We're just happy to have any part in it. 'Til next year, ladies.
