Coinciding with International Women’s Day, RIBA North East is planning an exciting event to explore, challenge and address issues of gender diversity in practice.
We have invited practitioners to speak from a variety of scales of practice, who lead by example and have a strong ratio of male: female staff. We want to learn from reality, and hear your ideas, suggestions and inspiration about how we can “change the record” to recruit, retain and promote a more gender diverse profession.
The event will include presentations from leading architects sharing their insight, followed by a questions and answers time. The evening will be chaired by Grace Choi.
- Nicola McLachlan – Collective Architecture
- Fiona Welch – Collective Architecture
- Soo Darcy – Ryder Architecture
- Nicky Watson – JDDK Architects
- Jenny Gillatt - Mosedale Gillatt
Further discussion and networking is encouraged after the debate.
