We happily spent Women’s History Month celebrating our colleagues who have greatly contributed to the A/E/C industry. They are pioneers — architects, engineers, designers, marketers, managers, and more — leaders and change-makers, as well as activists, mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives.
In continuation of #womenshistorymonth, we are shining a spotlight on our good friend and colleague, Katherine Bajor. She knows that work/life balance is a constant challenge for many of us throughout our careers. She also believes that you can have it all.
During #womenshistorymonth, I’ve been telling stories about women in leadership within the A+D realm. Initially, I focused on the design professions, and then I profiled one of my long-term friends and business partners, Nancy Egan of New Voodou. Today, I’m shining my #spotlight on Gail Gabriel, who has been both a close friend and business partner for more than 50 years.
As part of #WomensHistoryMonth, I’m shining a spotlight on a constellation of women in leadership roles in architecture and design. Kudos to Alan Chimacoff and his photograph, Light Game 7.
To celebrate #WomensHistoryMonth, I am shining the spotlight on one of my dearest friends, Ruth Gless FAIA, who I have known for more than 30 years. By her own definition, she is an architect who paints.

When I first started working in the office of the Joint Venture Architects for the Bank of America Headquarters Building in San Francisco, I found myself in the midst of 50 architects and interior designers, located in an office on the 20th Floor of the still-under-construction high-rise.
