2016 EQUITY BY DESIGN SYMPOSIUM - OCTOBER 29, 2016

The AIASF Equity by Design 2016 Equity in Architecture Survey seeks to create a comprehensive national dataset detailing current positions and career experiences of architecture school graduates. The resulting research will focus on differential experiences of women and men as well as underrepresented racial and ethnic groups. The results will provide insights for talent retention in firms by exploring pinch points that influence decisions to leave the profession as well as factors that promote satisfying and sustainable careers in architecture for all architectural professionals.


KEY RESEARCH GOALS/OBJECTIVES FOR THE 2016 EQUITY IN ARCHITECTURE SURVEY INCLUDE:

  • Comparison of the current positions and career experiences of architecture school graduates   nationwide, including both current architectural professionals and those who no longer practice architecture.
  • Identification of career pinch points associated with these experiences, and comparison of the impact of career development, advancement, and talent retention of professionals of different backgrounds.
  • Highlights of individual attitudes and behaviors, as well as employer-provided benefits and practices that contribute to success in navigating these pinch points. Conversely, identification of behaviors and practices that correlate with negative outcomes.

  • Participation in the upcoming study includes the American Institute of Architects (AIA), National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) and National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA). The survey is funded through AIASF’s sustaining sponsorship program and in part through the AIA National Diversity & Inclusion Grant.
