Currently, she chairs the RAIC Committee on Regenerative Environments and is a member of the RAIC Congress Steering Committee. In her advisory role at Perkins and Will, Mona enjoys the opportunity to be a resource on a variety of projects–helping to problem solve and inspire people to incorporate sustainability values in their work.
