Welcome to the W awards and W programme

Formerly known as Women in Architecture, the W Awards and the W programme recognise women’s contribution to the profession around the world, promote role models for young women starting their careers, and encourage respect, diversity and equality in practice.

For our future to be relevant, we must shake off the shackles of ‘the gentleman’s profession’. In partnership with The Architectural Review and the Architects’ Journal, the W initiatives are a celebration of talent and ambition, of leadership and outstanding architecture.
