PIERS Mentoring Program

AIA Kansas City strives to provide our members with the resources they need to advance their careers in meaningful, impactful ways. Mentorship has, and continues to be, a cornerstone of career advancement. And though mentorship was once seen as a top down, one-to-one experience, we believe effective mentoring involves a cross-generational, multi-directional flow of knowledge. Further, it is clear that mentoring is needed at all career stages - from emerging to established professional – as leadership skills continue to be developed throughout the career of the architect.

In order to help our members achieve their career goals, AIA Kansas City has re-imagined mentoring by designing a dynamic team approach to mentoring – PIERS. Centered on collaboration, PIERS allows members to tailor their experience to meet personal goals, build skills and find trusted guidance in a casual yet structured environment. With over 1,000 members that make up AIA Kansas City, PIERS allows participants to tap into and leverage a wealth of expertise and guidance.
