FIRST 500 appeared as a seminar at the 2019 NOMA in Brooklyn, NY and as a video for the exposition. The session wrapped up with a powerful moment of all of the Black Women Architects present taking a photo together.


FIRST 500 appeared before the NOMA Houston Chapter. “Being able to partner with the mission of First 500 and host Tiara at Gensler Houston was a great opportunity for myself and our office in general to tackle such an important issue within our profession. The presentation was just what people needed to make things ‘real’ in order for folks to understand the current status of black women in the architectural profession. Looking forward to part two!” – Justin Tablet – President, Houston NOMA Chapter
