Women In Architecture
Women In Architecture
IS A GLOBAL INITIATIVE TO ACCELERATE THE PATHWAY FOR WOMEN IN ARCHITECTURE TO AMPLIFY THE IMPACT OF THE DISCIPLINE WORLDWIDE.
THE MISSION FOR WOMEN IN ARCHITECTURE
We drive the expansion of women in architecture roles towards an equal balance and enable women to thrive and contribute with impact.
Through the increased and equal contributions of women in architecture, we will leverage our own diversity as the way forward to build unity and harness the full power of architecture to make a difference for our organizations, societies, and world.
Why be With Us
As organizations navigate some of the most massive shifts in history in our globally connected and increasingly digital world, the role of enterprise architecture has never been more critical. As a global discipline and community of practitioners, we are going to need every one of us to be at our best to help navigate the changes and challenges ahead – and to make sure that the business models and technology of today create a collective tomorrow that we all want to live in.
As we prepare to rise to this occasion, there is a shocking truth about the discipline of architecture to consider though: only around 10% of architect roles are performed by women. In a time when we need the greatest diversity of ideas, perspectives, approaches, talents, and experiences, as well as sheer capacity, we are operating at a significant disadvantage.
However, more and more women are becoming architects as well as moving into leadership roles. They are strong contributors and are shaping architecture in new and unique ways that expand and enhance the entire discipline. Now we just need to take it to the next level with intent and commitment.
 Based on the data here: https://www.zippia.com/enterprise-architect-jobs/demographics/#gender-statistic. While limited, we still believe that the data is directionally accurate and indicative of the gender gap across all domains of enterprise architecture worldwide.
OUR FOCUS AREAS
We will achieve our mission through the following focus areas, which we will evolve and grow into over time.
