I have a formal accredited architectural qualification have been working for more than 15 years in architectural services, but am not registered as an architect. I offer small parcels of value-for-money architectural services for everyday people. I work part time and am a mother of three. I am an advocate for equity for women in architecture.
The Institute of Architects Gender Equity Policy states that " The recent study Equity and Diversity in the Australian Architecture Profession: Women, Work and Leadership offers extensive evidence that, within the architecture profession, many women participants are being compelled or encouraged to leave the profession, or are discouraged from returning to it after a career break. The study confirms that the participation rate of women in the profession, particularly at mid-career and late-career points, is disproportionately low compared to the number of women graduates in architecture. It also identifies that the number of women owners/principals of architectural practices is disproportionately low when compared to the number of women architects in the profession."
