Hiring and Retention: Knowledge Session Panel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While nearly half of today’s graduates from architecture programs are women, females make up only 25% of practitioners, and 17% of partners or principals in architecture firms. In the Hiring & Retention portion of the symposium, we will examine data on the initial employment and retention of architectural professionals as it relates to gender equity. We will highlight “pinch points” around major career and life milestones at which women have an increased likelihood of leaving a firm, and will introduce best practices for individual practitioners, firms, and policy makers seeking to mitigate the impacts of these pinch points.
