For the 5th annual AIA-NY Global Dialogues Leaning Out event, we are pleased to bring you "Displacements_ Women in Academic Leadership Now," a discussion featuring pivotal leaders of several major, elite educational institutions.  At a moment when the fraught relationships of gender and power have been playing out daily in the news in arenas ranging from politics to media and the arts, a transformation has been quietly occurring in architectural academy where many top US programs now have women in key positions of leadership.  As the discipline evolves, how are these leaders preparing the next generation of students to assume the mantle of leadership in practice?
