In The Community: NOMA AZ

PHX’s Maurita Harris attended the first meeting of the inaugural chapter of NOMA, National Organization of Minority Architects. Maurita is one of 18 founding members to the Arizona Chapter which looks to inspire and empower under-served communities.

To kick-off the chapter, the first meeting included a March Madness job search seminar and workshop. It included tips for resume writing and interviewing and the highlight was a “lonely only” round table discussing when a person in the only minority in a workplace. Ten students from ASU and other area schools attended.

To start the chapter, approval had to come from the DC office. In the future, NOMA AZ looks to offer outreach and scholarships to minorities interested in design.
