Please help the AJ track the evolving status of women in the industry by filling in the 2014 Women in Architecture online survey - men too!
This year’s survey is open to both men and women working in the industry and aims to track perceptions of equality, salary, work/life balance and opportunities for progression.
The anonymous questionnaire asks questions about career challenges and experiences of working, covering earnings, sexual discrimination and childcare.
Last year, more than 700 women and 191 men responded to the survey, which revealed a glass ceiling pay gap in the profession, with 26 per cent of women directors earning less than their male counterparts.
A massive 89 per cent of respondents to the 2013 survey also thought that having children put women at a disadvantage in architecture – an increase on the previous year’s results.
The research will form part of the AJ’s ongoing Women in Architecture campaign, which aims to promote the status of women in the industry while encouraging role models for young women in practice.
The annual programme also includes three awards. The 2014 Jane Drew Prize, the Woman Architect of the Year Award and the Emerging Woman Architect of the Year Award are now open for entries and nominations.
The winners will be announced at the next awards luncheon, to be held at the Langham Hotel on 7 February 2014.
