Alison B. Hoffmann
Chair, Diversity and Inclusion Committee
With a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from the University of Arizona, Alison is the single point of contact for all official corporate communication. She edits and produces the award-winning Hoffmann JOURNAL, as well as technical articles in trade publications, and she oversees the image and reputation of the firm in print, online, and in the industry.
Alison serves as Chair of the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Under her leadership, the committee’s work garnered the firm the inaugural Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (J.E.D.I.) Award from AIA Connecticut.
In her roles as a communications professional and J.E.D.I. advocate, she strives for inclusive and empowering programming that elevates the discourse on the building enclosure and highlights voices of the diverse professionals contributing to the field.
Outside the office, Alison enjoys streaming audiobooks while running (favorite to date: Sherlock Holmes, narrated by Stephen Fry), reading (recent nonfiction pick: Invisible Child by Andrea Elliot; recent fiction: Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr), re-watching favorite films with her daughters (such as: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), taking embarrassing home workout classes (barre, MMA, boot camp), attempting to leash-train her two cats, and cooking too-elaborate weeknight dinners (vegan).
