New survey exposes achievement gap between men and women designers

A new “Equity in Architecture” survey finds that women and people of color continue to lag white men at architecture firms in career success measures such are salaries and advancement. This “achievement gap,” according to this survey, is less the result of systemic racism or sexism (although both still play in the background, like elevator music, at many firms), and more due to the lack of transparency in a firm’s process of promotions, equal access to its senior leaders, ongoing performance feedback, and having meaningful relationships at work.
