Fill in the AJ Women in Architecture survey 2013 and help us redress the balance

  • Comment

Architects, technologists, clients and students, fill in this year’s AJ Women in Architecture survey before Christmas and help us track the evolving status of women in the profession

This year’s survey is open to both men and women working in the built environment to track perceptions of equality, salary and flexible working.

The anonymous survey asks questions about career challenges and experiences working in architecture covering subjects such as sexual discrimination, childcare, work/life balance and pay.

Completed by nearly 700 women, last year’s survey revealed shocking findings and resulted in the instigation of three new honours for female architects.

The 2012 Women in Architecture survey showed that 47 per cent of women claimed men were paid more for the same work and almost two thirds believed the industry was yet to accept the authority of the female architect.

The survey forms part of the AJ Women in Architecture campaign and awards, sponsored by Roca, which aims to promote the status of women in architecture while encouraging role models for young women in practice.

The annual programme includes talks and events, a luncheon, an industry survey and three honours.

The next AJ Women in Architecture luncheon will be held on 22 March at the Langham Hotel, London, and AJ editor Christine Murray will be hosting a talk at the Roca Gallery for International Women’s Day on 8 March 2013.

The information provided by the survey will help to inform articles and research for both The AJ in print and online from January 2013.
