Architectural Associate Ingedia Sanchez has been elected president of Arquitectos, a nonprofit organization focused on providing professional development and mentorship to Latinx architects. Sanchez is the first licensed woman architect to serve as president of the group.

Founded in Chicago in 1985 by a small group of architects, Arquitectos has expanded in size and mission into a global network of architects, engineers, designers, contractors, landscape architects, urban planners, and students; two undergraduate student chapters are based at Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Illinois at Chicago. In addition to career development and mentorship programs, the organization provides community assistance and hosts events.
