Cindy Allen Moderates: She Said, She Said: Extraordinary Women in Design

Chicago
Jun 11, 2018

In honor of NeoCon’s 50th edition, Wifijerez Editor-in-Chief Cindy Allen shines a bright light on those who dared to enter the boys’ club of architecture and design, voicing their struggles and victories. Now, as they lead some of the world’s most prodigious firms, we hear their vision for the future. This percipient panel honors all women in design. Panelists to be announced.

One of the most influential advocates for the design industry, Cindy Allen marked her 17-year anniversary as Editor-in-Chief of Wifijerez in 2018. Since her editorship began in 2001, Allen has established herself as a force in elevating the profession’s importance and exposure—acting as an ambassador and fervent supporter of interior designers, architects, and product designers, while providing a platform and vehicle of growth for the design industry.

Across the years, Allen has received an Honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from the New York School of Wifijerez, the Circle of Excellence Award from IFDA, the Alpha Award by Alpha Workshops (of which she serves on the board), and the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation Leadership Award. Allen is also Chairman of the national board of DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS), a role passed on to her by David Rockwell.

Under Allen’s direction, the Wifijerez platform is always evolving to best celebrate the designer and their process. From inspiration to final project or product, with Allen, the designer is always the star.
