BCT faculty member Peggi Clouston will be one of the panelists during the prestigious keynote breakfast at the Women in Design Symposium at the ABX conference on 11/18. ABX is an architecture-focused conference, held annually in Boston. From the announcement:

This program includes a keynote breakfast, a forward-thinking brainstorming session, and the much-anticipated WID Awards Ceremony & Luncheon. How might the deepening relationship between research and design lead to practical applications? How might architects inform research methodologies within their own practice to inform innovation in the larger building industry? This year, Women in Design have invited four practitioners from design and academic backgrounds to hold an eye-opening discussion about the blending of research and design and how it is evolving the design industry in new and exciting ways. Enjoy breakfast with colleagues and hear the panel tackle this timely topic.
