In spite of the significant number of women choosing to study architecture as undergraduates, once qualified, women remain in the minority. As professionals their expertise is often overlooked, their work devalued and their contribution to the canon forgotten. Yet women's work is critical to the sustainability of a profession that must aspire to design high quality buildings for the whole of society. How can architecture attract, recruit and retain women? And how can women find ways to thrive within it?

Sumita Singha’s talk will focus on what women can do during education and work to help themselves and what support they need from practices and institutions in order to do this.

Sumita is an award winning architect, teacher and writer. She founded Architects For Change, the Equality forum at RIBA. Singha has served on many RIBA committees for over 25 years and on the NHS Board for nine years. Sumita is a trustee of four built environment charities including the Architects Benevolent Society, and the founding director of Charushila, an environmental design charity. Sumita is the RIBA Board Trustee for Education. She has taught architecture for over 25 years. Singha is the author of many publications on architecture. She received an OBE for services to architecture in 2021.
The talk is chaired by Lucy Bullivant Hon FRIBA, Trustee, Temple Bar Trust.

This event includes a complimentary networking reception with the speaker and audience members following the talk.
