WiA strives to promote, advance and celebrate women’s ongoing contribution to architecture. We aim to raise the profile, represent the views and promote the progression of women in architecture and the built environment professions.

Women in Architecture are driven by a desire to tackle the deep-rooted, well-documented gender disparities within the profession. We will address the structural, institutional and cultural issues facing women within the profession and within education. With the aim of stopping the talent drain of women from our profession and ensuring the voices of women in architecture are heard.

We are pushing to disrupt the familiar narrative of architectural history, from which women are largely omitted and obscured, by supporting, inspiring and championing women in architecture and diversity in architecture as a whole.

We believe this will have a positive impact on the built environment and secure a legacy of inspiration for future generations.
