Diversity in design
We believe great design is for everyone. The places we create, the ideas we explore and the industry we love should reflect the many diverse voices we encounter in our work every day.
We promote gender balance in our practice and across the field through initiatives such as our own WomenIN advocacy group and platforms like Parlour, a space where women in architecture can share resources, ideas and opinions. We’re one of the inaugural sponsors of the Parlour Collective, and many of our talented women feature on their site.
We engage with leading thinkers like the design research team at Monash University’s XYX Lab in Australia. They explore gender-sensitive design practices and theory – work that can help us ensure we’re creating places that are inclusive, safe and equitable for all genders.
And we foster next-gen designers from varied cultures and backgrounds through partnerships with groups like CareerTrackers, a non-profit that oversees the paid internships we offer to Indigenous Australian university students.
“It’s to everybody’s benefit to see more diversity in the workforce.”
