In advance of Women’s History Month, ASLA’s Women in Landscape Architecture Professional Practice Network (WILA PPN) launched a call for submissions from women in the profession and all throughout March. These WILA profiles have been shared on the WILA PPN’s social media accounts and on The Field blog to celebrate women in landscape architecture who are shaping our environment.

April may be here, but our focus on celebrating womxn in landscape architecture is far from over! The PPN envisions this as an ongoing series, with profiles being shared as they come in. We know there’s so many amazing WILA out there!

All are welcome to share this call—the PPN hopes to highlight diverse voices of landscape architects, including those who are active in their chapters or in their local communities, with perspectives from all career path stages, wherever that path may be taking you.
