RIBA FIGHTS FOR EQUALITY

  • Comment

The RIBA stepped up its fight for equal opportunities last week when it launched a new equal opportunities forum dubbed Architects for Change. The group aims to boost the number of women and ethnic minorities entering the profession and to improve pay and working conditions for women. The forum will act as a pivot for support groups such as Women in Architecture and the Society of Black Architects. For the academic year 2000-2001, only 34 per cent of entrants for Part 1 exams were women. 'Women, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities are under-represented in the profession and the RIBA is determined to redress this imbalance, ' said RIBA president Marco Goldschmied.
