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.

“I stumbled across the Women Build Podcast, by World Architecture News, through a link on a particular topic from another architecture podcast and have listened to a few other episodes since. Although it primarily exists as a platform for female voices in the industry and topics that are particularly relevant to women, more generally it’s just an interesting podcast where industry experts and leaders discuss key topics and issues within architecture! Worth a listen!”
Victoria Scott – Architect, Glasgow Studio
“Women in Architecture is a charity that I have had a really informative CPD from in the past. They are good on social media for stories and usually have different female architects and students do a take over week where they document what they get up to. They also do a mentor / mentoree programme which I think runs annually”
Lola Roca – Architect, Edinburgh Studio
“Gender roles are a fact. According to the World Economic Forum, the labour market needs 136 more years to close the gender gap worldwide. Although we have come a long way as a society, with many jobs already announced without gender and with a significant increase in the number of women in roles traditionally performed by men, we must continue our efforts to make it clear that there are no “women’s professions” or “men’s professions.” And this #REBELSFORCHANGE campaign is an example of it.”
