Amy J. Slattery, AIA, is an Associate at BNIM with nine years of professional experience. She is currently working on a new engineering facility at the University of California, Los Angeles, in collaboration with Moore Ruble Yudell, that promises to continue the advancement of sustainable design research.
In 2005, Slattery initiated Women in Design Kansas City (WiDKC) to reach out to established professionals in the community, learn from their success, advance the work women are doing and improve the way our lives intersect that work. WiDKC was one of ten programs selected for the first annual AIA National Diversity Recognition Program in 2009 and the only program to receive that recognition for the second time in 2010. WiDKC was a supporting contributor to the first Women's Leadership Summit in Chicago in 2009 and Amy is personally involved in the planning of both the 2010 and 2011 summits. Amy was asked to help establish the Women in Architecture and Design AIA Knowledge Net Community and was featured on the AIA homepage during the month of September, 2010.
Amy Slattery and her husband, a fellow architect, balance the demands of the profession while raising two young children. Architecture is intimately woven into her personal life and she has become a recognized voice on the topic of life/work balance.
