Are you asking yourself, “What exactly is The WoLand Foundation?”
We will always continue to evolve and make new discoveries about ourselves and how our foundation can best fulfill our promise to Landscape Architecture and the next generations of designers. You might have met us in person or attended one of our events or even had a quick coffee to chat about what we do and how you could get involved. But for those of you who do not know us yet, we thought it would be a good idea to share some notes in regards of what we do, what we don’t do and also share some testimonials from amazing people who have given a chance to showcase our work!
We are not a landscaping company
We routinely collaborate with many professionals within the landscaping industry, and we have a profound respect for their work. In many occasions, we collaborate with these companies in fun-built projects throughout the city especially during the amazing week of art Basel in Miami.
We are not financial advisors
But we know that EVERYONE could use a help and guidance with this subject, and so we recruit experts and mentors who are willing to share their knowledge for FREE with us and our audience and together we create amazing seminars, workshops, and team activities for professionals who need a little help organizing their financial lives so that they can feel empowered and sure about their future. Ultimately, it is our goal to ensure that those who become involved with our foundation find independence in all aspects of their life, not just design.
We are not a job recruitment agency
Our most sincere desire is that those young professionals who involve themselves with WoLand can establish valuable contacts with like-minded business professionals. But, when it comes to landing that dream job, you will have to put in the work. We will provide you with advice, the mentorship, the confidence and knowledge, and the required tools, but the rest is up to you!
We are not a catering company
Mmmmm... who doesn’t love food? did you know that we always make sure to include food and drinks at all of our events? Why? Because we believe that quality food and drinks always improve communal learning. Our staff and volunteers always come up with the most creative ideas to integrate food concepts into impactful learning! so, if you decide to become a regular patron at our events, please expect to have good food, meet good people learn something new every time, and have a memorable time.
We are not an activist group
But we believe and strive for equity, equality, women’s rights, and overall world kindness and peace. We believe that everyone deserves equal opportunity and equal treatment regardless of age, sex orientation, racial backgrounds, etc. Landscape architecture is an industry for all!
So, what are we?
We are an exclusive collaborative platform for landscape architect professionals, current and future, with a thirst for bringing landscape architecture to the next level of success. We listen and take bold ideas from landscape designers on how to better our world, and turn them into real projects for people to experience! We assist in providing invaluable mentorship to young design professionals as they wrap up their education and enter the workforce. We excitedly procure venues and audiences for an inspiring stream of magical and transforming experiences conducted by those select passionate individuals who are so graciously willing to share their stories to make a positive impact and value to the next generation of landscape architects.
Why do we do this?
We are here to show Landscape architecture professionals that anyone can make an impact while making an income. Designers have a different way of thinking and a talent for coming up with creative solutions to otherwise complicated and difficult problems. WoLand provides a platform through which those ideas can become reality, or at least give it our best try. Why? Because its worth it!
