The 140th UIA Council session of 23 July 2020 approved the establishment of a new UIA "International Women in Architecture" Committee to recognise the   contributions, leadership and engagement of women architects in national and international organizations. 

The Committee was founded to promote women’s advancement in the field of architecture, to ensure that women’s excellence is celebrated and represented and to create opportunities for visibility, advancement and recognition through the UIA’s Working Bodies and activities. 

The first inaugural International Women in Architecture Committee consists of five female Council members representing each of the five UIA regions: 

Istelianna Atanassova (Region II) - Chair

Natalie Mossin (Region I)

Rim Safar Sakkal (Region III)

Pei Ing Tan (Region IV)

Jacinta Kabarungi (Region V)

The UAP National Board of Directors in its regular meeting held last November 2020 endorsed the nomination of Architect Cathy Saldana as a corresponding member of the International Women in Architecture.
