Recently, the American Institute of Architects released a detailed report looking at diversity in architecture. The results of the study, the first of its kind in a decade, show that while both women and people of colour remain underrepresented, gender issues are particularly acute. In support, Archdaily wrote about how greater gender equity and workforce diversity benefits a firm’s triple bottom line. AIA’s report identified work-life balance, flexibility and working hours as key challenges facing the industry. In addition to creating more appealing workplaces and reducing burn out, addressing these concerns is likely to have one more benefit: a field more reflective and responsive to the society it serves.
