Angie Tabrizi, development project manager at Milwaukee-based Mandel Group Inc., is a founding board member of Women in Design: Milwaukee, a national organization focused on making architecture and design fields more diverse, inclusive and equitable.
“Angie initiated and raised funds for the first WID scholarship fund established in 2022,” said Robert Monnat, senior partner of Mandel Group. “WID can now make a material impact on students who have a record of contributions towards the advancement of women in design-related fields.”
“Through her commitment to expand the influence of the award, this year we were able to double the scholarship value, further supporting the winner’s ability to advocate for women in design. Angie, herself a mentor, organizes and recruits exceptional speakers for our events focusing on mentorship, leadership,and equity,” said Mo Zell, WID board member and interim dean at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning.
Tabrizi also collaborates with other women’s groups throughout the city to increase WID visibility and impact.
