We Are Here: Madame Architect for Visibility, Retention and Change

  • Rustbelt Reclamation 1427 East 36th Street, #1504a Cleveland, OH, 44114 United States (map)

WIA Celebration

Where are all the female architects is no longer the question-we know that they are everywhere.  The challenge now-and what has been the challenge for a long time-is how to celebrate their contributions and successes, and how to ensure that they stay in the profession.  Having published over 50 interviews with women in the profession-a project that is ongoing, Madame Architect's Founder and Editor, Julia Gamoline, reports on what women in architecture are saying about themselves and which resources they wish they had, and suggests a few ways forward.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will explore ways to celebrate and make visible the contributions of women working in all aspects of architecture.

  • Attendees will consider practice management strategies that promote increased gender equity within the profession, focusing on the retention and advancement of women.

  • Attendees will consider resources identified by women in architecture that would have been helpful for their career development.

  • Attendees will discuss ways to implement retention and advancement strategies and provide supportive resources in order to promote and support gender equity within their firms and the profession.
