Ballinger’s Angela M. Fante, PE, SECB, LEED AP will participate in a speed mentoring event organized by AIA Philadelphia’s Women in Architecture (WIA) and the Delaware Valley Association of Structural Engineers Women In Structural Engineering (DVASE WiSE). The annual event is an opportunity for quick information exchange in small group settings, focused on goals and professional challenges. Participants rapidly build professional networks and share successful ways to excel in the design profession. This year’s event will be held at Philadelphia’s Center for Architecture and Design on Wednesday, April 10.
As a Principal and Ballinger’s Chief Structural Engineer, Angie has been an integral team member on several significant building projects, while also leading Ballinger’s structural engineering department and consistently raising standards for Ballinger’s construction documents. “I was very fortunate to have had strong mentors during my early years in the profession. Had it not been for their patience and guidance, I may not still be a practicing engineer! It’s important for the next generation of architects and engineers to engage with those who have successfully emerged on the other side of those challenging first few years,” Angie said.
Ballinger Associate Principal and Director of Project Management, Erin Nunes Cooper, AIA, LEED AP, was a mentor at the 2018 event. She described the experience as “a wonderful opportunity to connect with many exceptional women in the profession, all learning from each other.”
