In a series of posts this week, we are sharing recommendations from the jmarchitects team about individuals or organisations who are seen as trailblazing or championing gender equality within the construction industry and beyond. Please feel free to share these with anyone you think they would be of interest to.
Geoffroy Griveaud – Architectural Assistant, Manchester Studio
“Urbanistas North West are organising an event for International Women’s Day in Manchester. This group is meant to promote women wellbeing, career development and overall inspire and support women in the construction industry. It’s all organised by and for women but everyone is welcome to attend.”
Melissa Hart – Architect, Edinburgh Studio
“I came across this article on LinkedIn which discusses many challenges women face in the construction industry- as well as experiences during lockdown- it also features some familiar faces”
Peter Menken – Project Director, Manchester Studio
Peter sent on a link to the RIBA’s website where there is lots of information about events and resources, “Throughout March we’ll be celebrating the major contribution women make to architecture and reflecting on our progress in addressing the structural barriers that perpetuate gender inequality.”
We are excited to see you all in London at the Workspace Design Show 2024!
