AJ100 2020: Women are gaining ground in the profession, but not BAME architects


It has really come to my attention that this issue needs to be treated separately because you are comparing gender with race. Just re-read your headline "AJ100 2020: Women are gaining ground in the profession, but not BAME architects" What if you're a woman and BAME? How does that effect the results? Tell people. Unfortunately, you will have to breakdown to the individual groups itself (B...A...ME). Clumping groups of people in accordance to their differences into one large group is simply misleading and can be manipulated by practices. It has also come to my attention the uproar people have for other issues unimportant, but when it comes to diversity it is all so silent. It is very telling. Many are praising on another prospective RIBA President who again won't make radical changes making the experience between All women and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic professionals better. Just look at staff images published by practices of "equal opportunities" practices that says it all. No practice should call themselves an equal opportunities employer if they don't even have a the diverse staff to prove it. Also, don't just observe "Architects" what about the architectural assistants? It affects those looking for jobs who have to witness this daily. Again and again with vague stats and to be frank practices consciously do not care. Attend one meeting and will call it a day.
