In Their Own Words: Women in Architecture Share How they #EmbraceEquity

In Their Own Words

As a global architecture practice dedicated to promoting gender equity within the profession, we are proud to use our platform as a vessel for sharing the insights and perspectives of women, whose everyday contributions to our firm propel our industry toward a more equitable future.

In celebration of this year's #EmbraceEquity theme for International Women's Day, women across our firm — from lab planners to designers, managing principals, and more — reflect on how they embrace equity in their roles, form equitable design teams, and design equitable built environments.

Here's what they had to say:
