Although women now account for 40 percent of all active interns and ARE candidates, a significant gender gap remains among supervisors. According to NCARB by the Numbers, only 13 percent of current supervisors are women. Similarly, women make up half of all architecture students, but less than 18 percent of architects. Now, we’re not the first to ask this question and certainly won’t be the last: Why the discrepancy?
Join us next Thursday, September 25 at 3 p.m. EDT for a panel discussion about women in architecture. Moderated by Architect Magazine Executive Editor Katie Gerfen, topics will include diversity in the profession, closing the gender gap, balancing work-home life, and more. At the end of the webinar, attendees will have the chance to ask panelists questions.
This month, you’ll hear from an all-star group:
- NCARB Second Vice President Margo Jones, NCARB, AIA, LEED AP
- AIA Young Architects Forum Co-Chair Anna Barbour, AIA, LEED APBD+C
- 2013 AIA DC Emerging Architect recipient Diane Leeson, Assoc. AIA, LEED APBD+C
