Equity by Design has ended

I have practiced and taught architecture for 25+ years. First 2 years after grad school (at SCI-Arc) in SF working for Paulett Taggart, then 21+ years in Boston working 7 years for Machado & Silvetti before starting my own office and teaching full time at Wentworth Institute of Technology. I have two children and never took time off for the kids. Just moved back to LA in 2012 and realized that much of my frustrations are about being a women in a dominate male field- I just never thought being a woman mattered. It does and for women to move forward we must acknowledge that fact. The architecture profession is in trouble maybe we can help fix it by having this discussion of equity.
