For over two decades, ReWA has held International Women’s Day celebrations in-person on March 8, bringing together our staff, students, clients, and community supporters – women, men, and non-binary individuals – to enjoy food, drinks, music, and laughter. While the pandemic forced us to celebrate online for the past two years, we were thrilled to once again invite folks to join us in-person this year at our Main Office to continue the tradition of honoring and celebrating women’s contributions to society.

DESIGNING FOR EQUITY: MONES’ STORY
Mones Esfandiari is a young woman who was born and raised in Afghanistan before relocating to the United States in 2016. Since an early age, Mones had a passion for art and hoped to incorporate it into her studies. Upon moving to the United States, Mones was determined to pursue her passion for the arts and enrolled at Todd Beamer High School in Seattle. While exploring the city, she became inspired to pursue a career in architecture, and her fascination with the city’s beautiful buildings fueled her ambition to design and construct buildings herself. Mones’ family background in engineering has also had a significant impact on her career path.
